It’s another week and another It’s Playtime round-up! Thanks to each and everyone of you who share fun activities for our kids to do together – you are an inspiration to me (and the source of many of the pins that I tag with hopes of doing that activity “one day”). This week’s collection of science projects is from our archives. We just welcomed our sixth kiddo into our home and are adjusting to the craze of our new-and-improved family. These are all super simple science experiments that you can easily replicate at home, with items commonly found in your kitchen. Kids live learning through experiments and I love easy!
Water turning arrow – watch how the curve of the water affects the shape of the arrow. Does it change with different types of cups?
Pepper and water tension – this is a favorite with my kids. Watch the pepper dance away from your finger with this surface tension experiment.
Color Changing Milk – I keep bumping into more and more milk color explosions experiments. This is truly a pretty experiment.
Clemintine Candle - This was not an It’s Playtime submission, but I wish it were! It’s on our list of “we-have-to-try-that” experiments.
Teastorm - this is a great addition to any study in weather, and it is easy to replicate at home!
Floating Ketchup – Thanks Science Bob for this science magic trick.
Eat nails for breakfast – we need to eat iron to help our blood process oxygen, however, we usually eat it in such tiny particles you can’t see it. This is a great way for kids to literally see the iron in their breakfast.
Thanks again for another great week of It’s Playtime. Posts linked up are getting thousands and thousands of views!!! I love to see the stats grow. As always, only kid-friendly posts, and by linking you give us permission to feature you (on blogs write-ups and in pinterest) and we add you to our weekly newsletter. Cheers!!
