science experiments kidsTo put it nicely, convincing kids to do something educational isn’t always the easiest thing, I know this is true because I’ve just had that chat with one of my kids and it wasn’t exactly received well! I’m a great believer that if you want kids to do something it has to tick two major boxes, it needs to be interesting and it needs to be actually achievable – we’ve had a lot of Pinterest related disasters too! Today I’m sharing some easy science experiments for kids with simple activities they really can do.

All these of these kids science experiments are either those I’ve done at home or those that other bloggers have personally recommended to me. If you check out the posts you’ll see a lot of their kids trying out these ideas too!

Hopefully this will give you some inspiration for easy science experiments to do at home that will help to make learning feel like fun.

Obviously this is a fairly big list so you won’t get them all done this week (unless you’re super keen?) that being the case you’re going to want to pin this or bookmark it so that you can return to it later!
