Want to try fun science at home? Today we will show you a fun and easy science experiment called Chicken in a Cup. Kids will learn how to make a chicken sound using the science of vibrations.

My son loves doing science experiments. This week we went to our local science museum where they had a two hour time entry. There was so much to explore within those two hours. However, my son decided to stay at the lab doing science experiments.

When we saw the Chicken in a Cup activity, we couldn’t believe a cup could make a chicken sound. Therefore, we had to try it.

The best thing about this activity is you will most likely be able to find the materials required in your home. Below is what you need…

Plastic cuphttps://amzn.to/3lxv9uC


Cotton stringhttps://amzn.to/3zuxFH3

Paper Towelshttps://amzn.to/2Z74VaJ

Once your child has completed this activity, they will be able to make a funny chicken sound with the cup. It works because of the science of sound and vibrations.

The video below will show you how to make the Chicken in a Cup. It also explains how it works. The video comes from my son’s YouTube channel, Corban’s Fun Learning Adventures. Please subscribe and like the video if you enjoy the content.
