To put it nicely, convincing kids to do something educational isn’t always the easiest thing, I know this is true because I’ve just had that chat with one of my kids and it wasn’t exactly received well! I’m a great believer that if you want kids to do something it has to tick two major boxes, it needs to be interesting and it needs to be actually achievable – we’ve had a lot of Pinterest related disasters too! Today I’m sharing some easy science experiments for kids with simple activities they really can do….
Last weekend we tried out a really easy lava lamp experiment, both my kids love trying out simple science experiments and ones that make fun things happen are always a winner!
After the huge success of our science experiment the other week where we entombed Batman in ice, I thought I’d like to try another ice science experiment with my son. Picking up ice with string and salt is a classic experiment, but I thought it might be a bit dull for my son as he is only four, so I thought about what four year old’s are actually interested in and came up with this fishing for dinosaurs experiment!
