Science Experiments for Kids

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.

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.

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