Get Ready to Learn with Science Experiments!
Science experiments are a great way to keep the whole family engaged and entertained while learning something new. Here are our suggestions for fun and easy science experiments that you can try at home:
Homemade lava lamp: Fill a clear plastic bottle with water and vegetable oil, and add a few drops of food coloring. Add an Alka-Seltzer tablet and watch as the mixture bubbles and creates a colorful "lava lamp" effect.
Pop Bottle Science: Have fun with 79 different science experiments all in this single kit! Use it to blow up a balloon, create a tornado, make quicksand, and SO much more! There is so much to learn in this Pop Bottle Science Kit.
Kidz Dino World Paint & Play: Use Dino World Paint & Play to create a fun volcano and race your friends to the finish line. Mix together baking soda and vinegar in a separate container, and pour it into the volcano. Watch as it erupts and creates a bubbly "lava" flow.
