Spectacular Science for Toddlers...

Kids Science Experiments and Science Projects are full of fun, easy and exciting hands-on experiments that will help you answer a lot of questions asked by your children. These simple, safe and easy to follow science experiments and science projects can be achieved with everyday materials and recycled items found around your house. Help make learning fun and easy by trying some of these science experiments with your kid's. Always have fun with your science experiments and don’t worry if your experiments don’t come out as you would expect – some of the greatest scientific discoveries have been made by mistake. Science is all around us in our daily living and the more you experiment with science and observe; the more fascinated you will become in finding answers.

Rainbow Toast
slice of bread
Food Coloring (2-3 small bowls)
Pastry brush or new paint brush
Fork or Spoon for stirring.

1. Pour milk into each of the bowls.
2. Add 1-2 drops of food colouring to the milk in each of the bowls. Stir the dye into the milk.
3. Put the bread, milk paint and brush in front of your toddler.
4. Let him or her paint on the bread with the “milk paint”. Flip the bread over for more fun.(You can toast if preferred)

Colour Blast
a bowl
food colouring (four different colours)
cotton bud

1. Fill the bowl with milk
2. Add one drop of each food colour to the milk (in towards the centre is best)
3. Let your toddler dip the cotton tip into detergent, then hold the detergent covered tip into the centre of the colours....The colours swirl and zoom around the bowl forming new colours.

Freeze tempera mixed with water in Popsicle moulds and then paint with "paintsicles" on watercolor paper. A dish of salt and a small bowl of water with a dropper helped create beautiful textures. Wetting the paper first with a brush or droppers full of water help the frozen paint slide across the paper. Dipping the end in salt for a minute helped speed up the melting process creating thicker paint, more vibrant colors and a grainy texture. Stamping the ends resulted in rings while sliding on dry paper made scratchy lines.
