7 Science Experiments for Kids That Will AMAZE Your Child!

I am a huge fan of science for children. Helping children learn about and explore the world around them is such a motivating way to work on critical thinking skills and develop a love of learning. And science easily lends itself to integrating all kinds of other subjects like reading, writing, and math!

One of the things I miss most about being a classroom teacher is the opportunity I had to help children (both boys AND girls) learn to love science! In addition to regular science lessons, I’d often do little science demos for the class to get them brainstorming and thinking. These demos would catch the students’ attention with something amazing or surprising. The students would observe and experiment with the demo and record their findings in their science journals.

These 7 science experiments for kids from last week’s Discover & Explore linky would be great science demos in a classroom or at home. They’re simple to set up and grab the children’s attention in an exciting way!
