Science Ideas from Quirky Mommas

I am joining the ranks of the Quirky Mommas over at the Kids Activities Blog.  I am excited to be one of their contributing authors!

It is a fabulous blog full of wonderful activities for kids for a wide range of ages.  I can get lost for hours reading all of the great ideas.  Since I tend to love creating and writing about ways to incorporate science into everyday play, I thought I would share some of my favorite science activities by the Quirky Mommas.

Make a balloon powered rocket.

Experiment with a paper airplane.

Can you make a potato chip bag float when it’s full of pennies?

Compare salt water and fresh water.

Learn about mixtures and solutions: have some fun making potions from kitchen ingredients.

Try one of my favorite versions of the lovely baking soda and vinegar reaction.

Create a ramp and design an easy experiment.

Create a compass rose to work on map reading skills and directions.

Learn about pulleys.

Make your own terrarium.

I hope you enjoy these fun science ideas!

Linking up here.

  1. Congrats! What great news!

  2. Wonderful list of ideas. We’ve got lots of time this summer and I’ve been looking for some fun things to do with my preschooler. She’d love these. Especially the balloon rocket. I’m your newest follower.
