Let’s get scientific, learn and play with these 50+ science projects for kids.
Looking for some fun things to do with your toddlers and kids? Why not break up the boring with some SCIENCE projects for kids!
Science Projects for Kids
Our 4 kids are (thankfully) still at ages where we can get them to do things together. My husband loves to break out the science when they start complaining and need something to keep their minds occupied.
From learning about electricity, to watching a chemical reaction — your kids will love to get their hands dirty with Science. Don’t tell them this, but they may actually learn something… shhh…..
Science Projects for Kids
We have a massive list of 50+ Science Projects for Kids that we've rounded up. Do you have a science project we didn't list? Leave a comment and we will add it to the list!
Using a pizza box - make smores or even heat pizza!
Science Projects for Kids – Quick Sand
This was a great science project as we were able to involve all 4 of our kids, ages 4 - 12! The project was totally simple to do - gotta love just a few ingredients.
An egg sinks to the bottom if you drop it into a glass of ordinary drinking water but what happens if you add salt? The results are very interesting and can teach you some fun facts about density.
How to Make a Tornado
I remember fondly of learning how to make a tornado - hopefully your kids will love this science project!
One of the most popular experiments of modern times is the Diet Coke and Mentos Geyser. This geyser tube make this fun one of our favorite and easiest science projects for kids.
Build a Hoop Glider Plane using straws and paper!
Next on our list of science projects for kids, we have a super hoop glider.
Since objects of different weight generally fall at the same speed, the hoop will keep its “upright” position. Build a super hoop glider in no time!
Microwave Light Bulb - SICK Science
Microwave appliances work by sending out tiny waves of energy, called microwaves. These waves of energy pass through the glass of the light bulb to excite the tungsten filament inside.
The tungsten is thin enough that it glows when excited by the energy waves. This is the same thing that happens when an electrical current, like the one from a light socket, passes through the tungsten filament.
Mystery Balloon Pop
Bust a balloon with a magnified light. Use this mystery balloon pop to show the power of the sun.
Surprise your friends and family with an easy science experiment that answers an otherwise tricky question.
Two eggs look and feel the same but there is a big difference, one is raw and the other hard boiled, find out which is which with this fun experiment.
