Science Experiments for Kids
Science experiments for kids are especially fun because kids see science activities the same way they see magic tricks. All the science experiments for kids listed below make great preschool activities and are helpful as well for kindergartners and homeschoolers.
So, let’s get started…
Hear Your Own Heartbeat – Attach a flexible tube to the small end of a funnel. Tape securely in place. Cover the large end of the funnel with paper. Place the large end of the funnel over your heart, and the end of the tube close to your ear. Listen as sound travels and you can hear your own heartbeat.
Make Salt Crystals – Put one half cup of warm water and a tablespoon of salt in a dark colored bowl. Place the bowl in a sunny spot so the water can evaporate. Use a magnifying glass to see the salt crystals that are left behind.
The Magic Coin – Place a coin in a colored bowl. Slowly back away from the bowl until you can no longer see the coin. Have someone pour water into the bowl. You’ll then be able to see the coin because the water bends the light reflecting from the coin around the edge of the bowl.
