Science is fun! Well, not always, but it can be. When learning is presented in a fun way, it tends to stick better. (That’s a scientific fact that I just made up.) Check out these science experiments that you can do at home. Most of them use ingredients that should be readily available in your kitchen or junk drawer. They are sure to entertain all ages and educate at the same time.
Kids can do these on their own, but keep an eye on things to make sure it doesn’t get too messy.

There are a variety of activity styles (from string art to skateboards), sure to keep everyone entertained!
