Silly Crazy Science Fun For When You’re Staying Home

Welp, we’re “quarantined” to slow the spread of this virus and I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty excited about a season of turning inward and reconnecting as a family. I love winter for the fact that we get more reading, more fireside chats, more “just us” family dinners and a little more cozy all around. This, however, is even better because we get all that connection AND sunshine! The kids and I were dreaming of some fun activities to do as a family and of course camping came up, as did planting some indoor seeds for next summer’s garden… and so did making volcanoes!

We love getting messy and trying out all kinds of sensory/discovery/science experiments so I thought I’d pass along the list of fun ideas we have for the next few weeks and maybe you could join us and try a few yourselves! Let’s get messy and crazy and learn a little bit hands-on style!

So my goal was to use everyday kitchen ingredients and to appeal to my at-home kiddo’s age range of 6-13 years old. I will admit, many of these are a little basic for the oldest but he likes to play along and learn the technical side of the science behind it all!

**Disclaimer: These are not my ideas or my experiments. I found them all on my beloved Pinterest and I can’t wait to try them! HUGE shout out to the peeps who succeeded at these ideas, photographed them, and then blogged them so we could be inspired.**

This DIY Puffy Paint is the BEST!

(We did this one last summer and while the kids had a BLAST, it didn’t stay put on our library bags like I hoped)

What are you looking forward to the most about your next few weeks!?
