Simple science experiments

Simple Experiments

We’ve listed a few easy-peezy science experiments which you can do along with your kids or let them do it by themselves. Because after all, kids the more kids see and observe things happening, the faster and better they understand the underlying concepts and theories associated with it. So let’s have a look at some of these simple-with-a-powerful message science experiments!

1. For explaining how plant systems and tissues work, you can keep a couple of white or faint colored flowers in a pot full of colored water. After a while when the color of the flowers changes, not only will your kids be amused but will also understand the way plants function and derive their source of nutrition from.

2. Dip a sharp tip in lemon water and write with it on a paper. Show it to the kids – they won’t won’t be able to see anything. But when you hold this very paper on a heat source, the kids will surely be stunned as to how amazingly the letters appear on the paper! This proves that lemon water contains carbon which is revealed when exposed to heat. Your kids will surely love this one as it is super spy-ish!

3. Teach your kids evaporation the right way – mix in a lot of salt and sugar in it and keep it under the blazing sun for a period – until the liquid evaporates and leaves back crystals of salt or sugar! Your kids will understand how salt which is in your home comes from and at the same time will follow the process of evaporation too.


4. Watch how the otherwise hard eggshell softens when placed in vinegar for a week! This is a superb chemistry experiment and will help kids understand how acids react with other substances.

5. You can plant a bean in a transparent cup – glass would be better to watch how the seed turns into a sapling. The transparency of the cup will allow your kids to watch how plants shoot up and down as they grow, giving them a clear understanding of plant systems.

6. Make your own little volcano at home! All you need is baking soda and vinegar! Add them together to make your fizzy eruption. You can even add color and glitter, to make your volcano look more authentic and fun!
See you until next time – with more such simple science experiments! Have fun doing these and catch up with the next ones too!

Simple chemistry experiments for kids

Chemistry Experiment

Chemistry is really an exciting branch of science, and probably the most loved when it comes to experiments! Because we have a lot of reactions, eruptions, sound and color effect when chemicals combine. To make sure your little ones develop a liking for chemistry right since a yon age, you need to expose them to simple, but exciting experiments which will not only amuse your kids but will also develop a keep interest in this magical subject called chemistry! So let’s start off with some exciting experiments!

1. Blow up a balloon without you blowing air in it! Watch the spooky balloon blow up itself, as you place it on the mouth of a bottle that’s filled with baking soda and citric acid (lemon). The gas that is the outcome of this reaction is carbon dioxide, which slowly rises up and fills up the balloon!

2. Soda powered boats are really fun! So what you can do is, pin a hole at the base of a bottle, enough for a straw to sit tightly in it. You could even seal the hole up after inserting the straw to ensure water doesn’t enter through the sides. Put in some vinegar in a way that it won’t spill out. Then add in a spoonful of baking soda to it, and make sure both don’t mix together until you place the bottle in a tub of water. Watch the boat power through the water ( albeit for a short distance!).

 

3. Magic milk is one fun chemical experiment – You just need full-fat milk, floating dish soap, food, and some cotton. Pour the milk in a bowl with a wide mouth. Then pour drops of different colors on it – you could even add some glitter for extra effects. Then use a cotton swab, dip it in the dishwashing liquid and touch the drops of color – watch the colors magically spread into varied designs and patterns! Bring out your Picasso (without any extra efforts in it!)

4. Create your own slimy slime! All you need is cornflour, food, and water! Pour the cornflour in a bowl, add small amounts of water at regular intervals and keep stirring until a thick paste has formed. Add a few drops of food color to this mixture. Now mix the slime really slowly, then stir it really fast and then punch it! There you go – your slime is all ready!

Try these experiments along with your kids – I’m sure they’ll love them!

Science Experiments

Getting kids to love science is a real task – unless a kid is born with inborn passion towards the subject, quite a lot of them turn out to dislike science. And that’s because of the way it’s taught! You cannot explain a practical subject by forcing kids to read books or read them out to them. The best way is to perform experiments and then explain the relevant concept to the kids – they will not only start loving the subject but will also comprehend and understand the idea in a much better way. So here we’ve listed a few science experiments which you can quickly perform in your class or home. They’re super simple and fun to show, and safe too! So go ahead, revisit your school days and also get the kids to love this super fun subject too!

If your kid asks you why there are so many colorful leaves during autumn and only green during monsoon, we’ve got something that will give them a valid and satisfactory answer. So go ahead with this experiment:

Materials required:

Three leaves from the same tree
A glass jar
Small bowl
Rubbing alcohol
Plastic wrap
Paper coffee filter

 

What you have to do:

1. Tear apart the leaves into small pieces and put them into the glass jar.
2. Pour the rubbing alcohol into the jar, ensuring all the pieces are submerged under it.
3. Mash and stir the leaves – do this until the alcohol turns greenish. Even after this keep mashing for a while as it’s essential for the experiment to work.
4. Now fill the bowl with hot water.
5. At the same time, cover the jar with the plastic wrap and place the jar in the bowl.
6. Let the jar stay in hot water for around 30-45 minutes until the alcohol turns dark green. You can swish the jar a couple of times to hasten the process, but 30 minutes is the minimum time you will have to wait.
7. Next, take the jar off the bowl and also take the plastic cover off it. Cut off a piece of the coffee filter and place it inside the jar like a litmus test. The liquid will slowly catch up with the paper, and after the alcohol evaporates, the colors are what will remain behind.

This will easily explain that the reason behind leaves changing their color is the fact that the green chlorophyll is dominant in some seasons, whereas the rest of the hidden colors become dominant in the other seasons. It’s just that they are hidden and not visible, due to the presence of excess chlorine.

A simple way to explain to your child the logic behind this!
