My son thinks anything space-related is cool. I have to agree. We BOTH learned a lot and had a blast with this science craft.
It’s almost Halloween so a little gore is a good thing, right?! Plus, it’s been ages since my son and I have done any human body-related science activities. Within the last week or two, my son and I have had conversations about both scabs and white blood cells. This activity is the perfect complement to those discussions. We made a model of blood! Here’s what we used:
Growing a cutting can be fun too. I recommend Fuchsia's or Geraniums as they are easy to grow. Firstly get a cutting by taking a section of non-flowering stem and cut it free with a clean knife from just below a leaf joint. Remove the leaves immediately above the cut.
Here's a fun and simple science experiment for kids that's artful, cool (literally) and requires only some very basic supplies. And the results are downright gorgeous, or at least intriguing, depending on the colors one uses! Infact, I hesitate to call this a simple science experiment for kids, since anyone of any age who appreciates colors and the beauty of ice crystals will certainly enjoy this one! I was inspired by a post over on The Artful Parent , where an ice block made in a milk carton is used, but I decided to make a smaller castle like shape by filling the bottom half of a recycled plastic bottle with water. Ours melted leaving lovely holes on the inside, and it really looked like a crystal palace of sorts!
The old becomes new: A new variation on the outdoor lantern. We have had an unusually warm winter in Michigan this year, and while the temps have been nice, I have had to hold off on this project idea until we got a cold snap. We finally got some snow and cold earlier this week, so I was able to try out this fun winter project. I had pinned a product called Globe Ice Lantern Kits a few months back recognizing that I could DIY them at home.
