How To Make Easy Homemade Ice Cream Without A Machine

Summer is officially here. The days are full of bright sun light. This means it can get extremely hot. The best way to cool down is to drink water. However, another way is to eat ice cream. Below we will show you how to make easy homemade ice cream without a machine.

This science activity is a fun cooking chemistry experiment for kids. This ice cream is made in a baggie (we call it a sandwich bag). This project is one of the best edible experiments you can eat.

My son, Cory, was excited about doing this project. He was amazed at how easy and fast it was to make the ice cream. When he first tasted it, Cory gave me two thumbs up.

Most likely you have all the ingredients in your home.

Below is what we used for the homemade ice cream…

Ice

1 Gallon Freezer Bag

1 Sandwich Bag

Salt

Heavy Cream

Sugar

Vanilla Extract

You will see that it is fun to learn how to make easy homemade ice cream without a machine. The video below shows you step-by-step how to do it. It comes from my son’s YouTube channel, Corban’s Fun Learning Adventures.

We Grew Our Own Ladybugs! | Fun Educational Project for Kids

A few weeks ago, my son and I grew butterflies. It was a magical experience. They came to us as caterpillars and we let them go at Painted Lady Butterflies. My son, Cory, loved the project so much, he wanted to learn the lifecycle of another animal. After doing a search, we found that we could grow ladybugs. We found that this is definitely a fun educational project for kids.

Watch the short video below to see our process for growing ladybugs

We used the Insect Lore Ladybug Land kit for this project. It was interesting to learn the lifecycle of ladybugs. The soon to be ladybugs arrived as larvae. About a week later they turned into pupae. Then one morning we work up and saw them as ladybugs. After feeding and observing them for a few days, we released them into the world.

We encourage you to try this fun educational project for kids. If you are looking for fun things to do with kids at home, then this is the activity for you. This fun STEM project can be done by preschoolers and up. It is a wonderful insect activity that your children will never forget.

PAPER BANGER that POPS – Easy Paper Activity for Boys and Girls

Summer will be here soon! This is a time when most kids are out of school. Parents are looking for fun and safe activities to keep their kids busy. In my opinion, nothing beats going outside to the playground or splashing in the pool. However, some days kids may have to stay in because of rain. We have a fun paper activity for boys and girls that can be done during these times. It is called the paper banger!

A paper banger is paper that pops loudly when it is moved quickly in a certain way.

It is an easy paper craft for children. We teach you step-by-step how to make the paper banger in the video below. Your kids will learn this awesome trick by folding paper. Additionally, they will learn the science of why this paper banger pops loudly.

Fun Animal Groups for Kids Game | A Fun Science Challenge

Animals are a fun subject for kids to learn about in school and at home. In fact, animals was one way my oldest son became interested in reading books. His favorite book as a baby was Brown Bear Brown Bear by Eric Carle. While reading this book, I would make the story come alive by doing the animal sounds in the book. Today, he still loves animals so, we decided to play a fun animal groups for kids game.

Being exposed to animal classification is a wonderful science and math lesson for kids. They learn how to observe animal characteristics and place them in categories. Children are also exposed to the diversity of living organisms on earth. Classification helps kids to learn about animal features and their similarities and differences

I decided to use a game for our animal classification lesson because it highly motivates my son. He is competitive and loves to win. Furthermore, games incorporate three of the five senses which are hearing, touching, and seeing. This helps my son gain a deeper understanding of the material.

In order to make this fun animal groups for kids game more exciting, we used his toy, Boom City Toy Car Set. In this game, you earn points for putting animals in the correct category and having the fastest car. As you will see in the video below, we had a blast playing this game.

We encourage you to watch the video with your kids. They will learn how to classify three types of animals in a fun way.

Colorful Ice Sea Animals | Easy Art Project for Kindergarten and Up

Art is such an important activity for kids to do. It displays their creativity and imagination. In our household, we love sea animals. We wanted to do a project that combines painting and sea creatures. Therefore, we came up with colorful ice sea animals. If you don’t have iced animals, then you can use cubed ice. Below we will show you how to do this easy art project for kindergarten, preschool, and up.

Here is what you need for this activity…

Food Coloring

Paper Plates

Sea Animal Ice Tray (optional) – You can use a cubed ice tray

Paintbrush

This easy art project for kindergarten and up will expose your kids to science and art. They will learn how water changes from a liquid to solid ice. Additionally, children will see ice change colors. If you leave the project out long enough, they will observe how solid ice changes back to a liquid.

We like this activity because it is easy to do and requires minimal setup.

Below is a video that shows you how to create Colorful Sea Animals. The video below comes from my son’s YouTube channel, Corban’s Fun Learning Adventures. Please subscribe if you like what you see.

How A Caterpillar Turns into a Butterfly – Home STEM Project for Kids

Spring is here! It is my favorite season because it is not too hot or cold. I also love going outside and enjoying the beautiful weather and nature as a whole. Last year, I showed my son a project where he would learn how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly. He was excited to tackle this challenge. However, last year, it was in the later part of the summer, which is too late to grow butterflies

I was debating on whether to show my son this project because I assumed I would have to touch caterpillars. However, this was not the case at all. Looking back, I am so happy I showed him this project because we had a great and memorable experience.

We used the Insect Lore Butterfly Garden to learn how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly. When we first received the caterpillars, they were tiny. However, they quickly grew before our eyes. My son and I enjoyed observing and feeding them fresh fruit. It was amazing to watch them form into chrysalis and transform to butterflies.

When it was time to release the butterflies, it was a bittersweet moment. They became part of our family during the short time they were in our home. We were going to miss them. However, watching them fly out of the habitat was amazing.

My son learned so much. He was able to experience firsthand the wonderful world of nature and science.

The great thing about the Insect Lore Butterfly Garden is you can purchase more caterpillars with the garden you already have. We are planning to grow more butterflies this spring.

We think your kids will LOVE this STEM project. Watch a short video (under two minutes) below of our experience with the Insect Lore Butterfly Garden. In the video, you the see our process for growing the butterflies and releasing them into the world.

Explosive Lunch Bag for Kids | Fun Science Experiment to do at Home

Science explosions are my son’s favorite type of activity. You may assume that we saw this activity in a science book or the Internet. However, we read about this activity while reading the Weird School book series by Dan Gutman. My son, Cory, loves reading these books. Once he saw we could make a lunch bag explode, he looked at me and said, “We gotta do it!” This is definitely a fun science experiment to do at home.

The great thing about this activity is you most likely have all the ingredients in your home. Below is what we used….

2 Gallon Ziplock Bag (you can use 1 gallon as well)

Food Coloring

Vinegar

Baking Soda

It is best to do this science experiment outside. Also, you should wear old clothes along with science gloves and goggles.

While doing this experiment, your child will learn about how acids (vinegar) and bases (baking soda) react to one another. Vinegar and baking soda combine to make carbon dioxide which is a gas.

Don’t be surprised if your child wants to do this activity again.

In the short video below, we show you how to set up the experiment. The video comes from my son’s YouTube Channel, Corban’s Fun Learning Adventures. Please subscribe if you like what you see.
