Best Science Activities and Experiments for Kids
My kids love science activities and so do I, so we find ourselves doing them quite often lately. I love that they are learning while having so much fun.
Science experiments are a great, hands-on way for kids to explore scientific concepts. They are super engaging and exciting, so kids are really drawn into learning.
Plus, I find that they learn more when they are engaged with interactive, hands-on ways.
The experience becomes more memorable than simple reading about science or doing a workbook page on a scientific concept.
I really try to find science experiments that are simple and use supplies we already have or can easily get. I find that the easier they are to set up, the more we do them.
So if you are looking for simple science fun too, these will be perfect for you.
