My son loves science kits. We recently built a battery operated domino robot from a kit. After observing his interest, I decided to research robots that could be made with homemade materials. As a result, we found an easy electric circuit experiment for kids.
We decided to start with a simple circuit project, where we lit a LED light bulb using batteries. Surprisingly, it was easy to do. However, parents need to be present when their children are doing this experiment.
Today, I will give you three fun science activities for kindergarten and up. These projects will amaze your children. They will turn water from clear to colored, move salt and pepper with a balloon (without touching it), and make an oboe with a straw.
Slime is always a fun STEM project for kids. We have made glow in the dark slime, monsterslime, and basic slime. Today, we have a fun and interesting project for kids to try. They will make Fluffy Snowman Slime! This is an easy slime recipe for kids that uses household materials.
While shaping the slime into a snowman, kids may notice that the slime is fluffy and starts to act like a liquid. The slime is fluffy, which is most likely a different texture than other slimes you have made, because of the shaving cream.
My son loved doing this project. He played with the slime for 45 minutes.
Below is a step-by-step video of how to make the Snowman Slime. This video comes from my son’s YouTube channel, Corban’s Fun Learning Adventures. Please like and subscribe to the channel if you find the content helpful.

Eggs can be a wonderful food to eat. Many would argue that they have a lot of nutrition. We often eat eggs for breakfast. However, a lot of people don’t know that eggs are great for science experiments. In the past, we have made bouncy eggs, glow in the dark eggs, erupting eggs, egg drop and more. Today we will show you how to make a volcano for kids (with eggs)!
Most likely, you will find these items in your home. If so, I encourage you to get started right away. Your kids will love this experiment! It has many elements of fun such as mixing, painting, and an explosion.
Your child will see how the vinegar and baking soda create a chemical reaction. The use of eggs makes the experiment more dramatic.

We learned about this experiment from our local science center. My son liked this activity so much, he conducted the experiment twice. He also wanted to make a video about it.

There is so much to see in this experiment. They will see that water and oil do not mix. Also, your kids will observe how Alka Seltzer reacts with water and oil. Ask your children if the food coloring mixes with the oil or water. Furthermore, have them note what happens once the dish detergent is added to the mixture.
Have fun with this awesome chemical experiment to do at home!
