We love doing hands-on science experiments whenever possible. My personal favorites would be those that we can do with things we already have in the house, and that is mainly what you are going to find here.
We also have simple and fun science experiments that you may want to check out too. There are some that are super easy and you can set them up in minutes for a lot of fun.
After years of living in a small community without a store, we have learned to be very creative in most of our science experiments and to plan ahead for others.
There are two types of science experiments that we like to do. Those that we simply do for fun and those that we do for educational purposes and go along with our lessons.
