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.

Science Experiments

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.

Fun Science Experiments

Color Changing

We have done a few fun science experiments that involve color. Taking color away or adding color to something, is super fun.

Outside Fun

Sometimes experiments can get away from us and we are better off doing those ones outside instead so we don’t have to worry about the mess that is going to be made – like lava lamps – you don’t have to limit the fun or mess outside when you can just hose it away.


We have a few different kinds of weather in a jar experiments that we have done on a rainy afternoon simply because they were fun, but boy we’re able to learn a lot from them.

I hope to always be doing science experiments with my kids no matter how old they get because I enjoy them just as much as they do.

We have done experiments for holidays and for different seasons and for different types of weather.
