Some of the best scientific experiments don’t require an entire kit worth of materials, a metric ton of supplies, or detailed scientific knowledge in order to complete. Sometimes, the best experiments are the simple ones, that require nothing more than a few household items, ingenuity, and a fascination for discovery in order for your kids to enjoy them.
365 Simple Science Experiments with Everyday Materials is a book designed to give your kids all the experiments they could need, without much of the fuss; there’s one for every day of the year! These are simple experiments for younger ones who are just starting out (the more advanced kids will be bored, but the four-year-old will be wowed). Your budding scientists will be doing everything from making their own rainbows, to learning how a pulley system works, all by using random stuff you probably have lying around the house. Even if you don’t, all the activities function off of items that are relatively easy to acquire, so there’s no need for advanced kits or lengthy setup, just a healthy imagination and a kid to share the experiences with.
Crack open the book, grab a few tools, ingredients, your kid (not too hard, of course), and get to science-ing! Don’t worry, you won’t be doing anything that might end up like this:
