As parents, we are always looking for new ways to make learning fun for our children. It’s always exciting when we find new and unique ways to do so. Science is one of those awesome subjects that lets you explore the various branches in so many different ways. There are so many awesome science experiments that can be done from the comfort of your very own kitchen, and the kids will love the hands-on approach to learning!
#1 – Homemade Rock Candy
There are quite a few reasons to love this experiment. One, it’s rather fun to watch the crystals form on the wooden skewers. Two, it’s candy! Adults and kids alike will love making their very own candy at home! Experiment with different flavors and colors! The sky’s the limit!

#2 – Make A Groovy Lava Lamp
As kids, we were fascinated by the different patterns and light that emanated from the ever-awesome lava lamps that were sold virtually everywhere! Now you can recreate the groovy-ness right at home with an up-cycled soda bottle, oil, water, and food coloring!

#3 – Rockin’ Rainbows
Rainbows are one of the most beautiful works of nature that there is. This project would be a great way to teach your little ones the colors of the rainbow. Plus, you get some really gorgeous artwork to hang in your den when you’re finished! It’s a win-win for everyone.

#4 – Magic Pencil Trick
This is a quick and easy experiment for when you don’t have a lot of time but still want to do an experiment. Grab a plastic sandwich baggie, fill it about halfway with water and seal it up really well. Take a well-sharpened pencil and push it through one side of the bag until it pokes out the other side. Have your kids observe what happens. Take this opportunity to ask them questions about what they thought would happen and why.
