Take one or more kids. Add a few common household ingredients. Lo voilà, observe!
Kids love to explore the world around them and experiment with materials at their disposal. Just ask any parent with children who dig into bags of dry flour and bowls of wet batter while helping in the kitchen.
Take the fun one step further with these construction, or fizzy, colorful or gooey experiments that are sure to captivate your budding scientist at any age. By using non-toxic ingredients, like baking soda, vegetable oil and water, even the youngest ones in your home can participate in the magic. Learning will come naturally; they’ll think they’re just having fun!
Your kids will love all the things they create and discover with these fun science experiments.
Curiosity is the desire to learn! Curiosity is the spark that helps us learn and grow – it’s human nature’s carrot out in front of us – enticing us to move forward a bit more, to discover the world around us and help us make sense of the world. Curiosity ultimately helps us evolve as individuals.
Our children have access to the world’s information at their fingertips, literally on their mobile phones and devices, and yet most of our school systems still force children to focus on the handful of subjects they believe are most important – actually discouraging children to let their minds wander and wonder where it most wants to go.
This is when we begin to loose our childlike sense of wonder. Einstein said, “it’s a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.”
Allowing your child to use their nature curiosity and creativity expands their horizons and makes learning an engaged, fun activity that they will not soon forget.
