Explore Möbius Strips

Kids can try it at home with scrap paper, scissors, and tape. It’s very adaptable for different ages and abilities.

Watch the video to see what happens. Try it yourself.

Keep track of the number of twists before you tape the paper to find the pattern for how many twists results in how many loops.

It’s fascinating for both children and grownups! 

Simple Science at Home – Static Electricity

You might be familiar with the activity that moves your hair even if no one is touching it! Simply rub a balloon on a soft paper towel, cotton or wool shirt, and bring it near a person’s hair.
It helps if the person has fine hair, my husband’s is GREAT so I often draft him for this demonstration. He just loves it! 😉

If you want more suggestions for playing around with static electricity while we wait out this virus event, here are suggestions from the Exploratorium.

Enjoy!

Simple Science at Home – More Bubbles!

I recently posted suggestions from Steve Spangler for bubbles.

My niece called for a bubble recipe as she played with her almost two-year old son and I thought it can be such a fun activity I’d find more resources for you.

Just like my last blog, my source is the Exploratorium Museum

I listed activities from simple materials to uncommon materials like dry ice.

Simple Science at Home – Pressure

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).
