These kitchen science experiments are totally fun for kids and perfect for the summer!
Summer time is quickly coming, which means your kids are going to be home all day looking for something to do.
Keep from hearing the words, “I’m bored,” by having some fun activities on hand. Kitchen science experiments are a great option for summer entertainment because you probably already have everything you need in your pantry.
Keep your kids entertained this summer with these four fun kitchen science experiments.
3 cups of sugar
1 cup of water
Mix one cup of water and one cup of sugar in a large saucepan. Heat the water over medium low heat until all the sugar has dissolved. Slowly add more sugar, mixing constantly until the sugar will no longer dissolve in the water. Pour more sugar onto a paper plate and roll wet wooden skewers in the sugar. Set the aside to dry. Pour the sugar water into a jar and place the wooden skewer in the water. Set the jars in a place where they won’t be disturbed and watch as the sugar crystals grow from day to day.
Pour a thin layer of milk in the bowl and squeeze a few drops of food coloring into the milk. Dip the end of the toothpick in dish soap and place it in the center of one of the food coloring drops. Watch as the color spreads throughout the milk.
Kitchen Scrap Garden
Create your own kitchen scrap garden by placing scraps in water to grow. To grow a pineapple, remove the crown and peel off the bottom leaves. Place the end in a jar of water. Roots will begin to appear in a month. To grow green onion, place the root end of the onion in a small glass jar filled with water. Watch the roots start to grow within a few days. To grow an avocado, insert four toothpicks into the sides of the pit and place it in the top of a small jar filled with water. Roots will start to grow within a few weeks.
Heat source (candle flame, iron, light bulb, etc.)
Use lemon juice and a paint brush to write secret messages on a piece of white paper. To reveal the message, hold the paper up to a heat source.
