Kids of all ages are always curious about how the world works, why things are the way they are, or how stuff works. By engaging their attention with a fun science experiment, you can help them understand the world around them, and hopefully have fun at the same time.
Unless you’re a teacher or scientist though, it might be tricky to know what experiments are best, what materials you need, or what to look for in an experiment. Luckily, if you know where to look, you just might have access to lots of great kids science experiment ideas in places you visit everyday.
Public libraries or school libraries often carry books geared toward children full of fun and age appropriate science projects. Be sure to look for one with good instructions and pictures to help you along. Your child’s teacher or science teacher might also be a great resource for finding a science experiment. Your teacher might also be able to help you find a kids science experiment idea that is relevant to what your child’s class is studying in science at that time.
Finally, the internet has many websites geared toward science experiments for kids. Searching for kids science experiments will yield tons of helpful results, many of which can be found at places like 24 Hour Science Projects. Remember to have fun by doing a project your child is interested in, and always be safe!
