Have you ever painted...with magnets? With a new magnet kit at our disposal, and Kay's love of all things magnetic, I wanted to try this science and art combo.
Walking water is an awesome experiment. We had fun exploring markers and water on paper towels before and it was neat how the colors spread. This time we tried this experiment, inspired by The Royal Baloo. (Check out how to do it over there - she offers some great tips to keep in mind that were really helpful!)
I don't have a new experiment to share today. Instead, I'm sharing some great ones you might have missed!
Today I want to take a moment to shine a spotlight on the awesome experiments my co-hosts get up to. Here are just some of the awesome ideas from Little Bins for Little Hands, Suzy Homeschooler, Stir the Wonder, Lemon Lime Adventures and The Joys of Boys.
Some "so cool" ice science: (get it? "Cool"! I'm going to be wonderfully embarrassing to my daughter someday soon!)
Summer opens up a whole new world of science opportunities! All the warm weather and water play are gold mines for exploring and sparking questions. Here are 10 easy ideas that I hope we'll get to try this summer!
We had some jelly beans in the house - great for an occasional treat, but I didn't really want the whole bag hanging around. Surprisingly, Kay didn't put up much of a disagreement when I suggested we try a little science with them.
It comes with experiment ideas on cards, with the materials from the kit you need listed in pictures. So we decided to try the oil and water one.
I've seen this experiment floating around for awhile and decided to finally give it a try after finding it again on an awesome science for kids site I found. (Don't you love how I make it sound like I "discovered" it!)
I tested it (and took some pictures) before Kay woke up. When she did get up, I told her, "I have a cool science experiment to show you!"
I've been putting off our next attempt at a volcano until we could do it outside. I also wanted to have an ample supply of vinegar on hand. Well, both things fell into place this week, and I even found our toy dinosaurs, so volcano time it was!
