Here’s the fifth in a series of fun, at home resources
I want to share from SteveSpanglerScience.com.
He’s posting fifty experiments for fifty days starting yesterday 3/23/20. Check them out!
I picked activities that worked for a variety
of ages and with simple materials you might find at home.
I suggest many extensions to challenge
kids as they do science (and make the activity
take a bit longer).
Use sleeves from take out coffee OR scraps of paper to make an optical illusion.
Stare at an image and when you look away you’ll see something very different.
Create an illusion of a pumpkin and then use an image you choose to create a new illusion.
Use wet gloves to bounce bubbles!
Create bubbles inside bubbles!
If you have the supplies you might create bubble cubes or bubbles snakes.
Lots of bubble ideas!!
Try a few activities with water.
You’ll need a wrapped straw, a few toothpicks, and a penny.
It helps if you have an eyedropper, too!
What to do with kiddos who are
suddenly at home for a week or two?
Check out these GREAT activities from
an amazing site that lets you read
about and then watch simple activities.*
