10 science projects to keep your kids busy and learning this summer

 Let the experimenting begin...

Fun summer science projects for your kids
This summer give your kids the permission to get loud. Real loud. This simple science experiment will teach your kiddos all about how sound is made.



This neat experiment will teach your little ones where rain comes from. When you're done creating your rain jar, sit back and watch as the warm moist air from the water inside the jar rises and mixes with the cool air that is created by the ice cubes on top of the jar. This will cause condensation which will cause "rain" to fall inside the jar.

By using only sugar, water, and food dye you can teach your children all about density and concentration and have an incredibly fun time while doing it. This super simple and colorful experiment will have your kiddos enthralled by science for years to come.



This super simple project will teach your children about geode rocks. Take advantage of  how long it take for the project to complete and use the time to read all about geodes. Here's a great resource that will teach you all you need to know about these beautiful rocks.



Every kid loves a volcano. Teach your children all about volcanoes using this super cool experiment. All you need is a coconut, vinegar, dish soap, baking soda, food dye and a big imagination.



Here's another excellent lesson in density that is just as educational for adults as it is for children. The best thing about this project is that all the supplies can easily be found in your home.



Now that you've worked up quite sweat from all these awesome science projects, take a quick break and have your kiddos prepare a blender free slushy. This project does require overnight prep, so be sure to read the instructions and set everything up the night before.



Teach your kiddos all about gas with this fun experiment. All it requires is a bottle, balloon, baking soda and vinegar. Simply mixing the ingredients will form carbon dioxide and will cause the balloon to inflate before your very eyes.


Disappearing Egg Shell
Find out what happens when you submerge an egg into a bowl of vinegar. This experiment will take a few days so in the meantime, you'll be able to work on another few projects in the process.



Keep cool this summer with this colorful experiment. This easy-peasy project is just as educational as it is eye-catching.

  2. I did the disappearing eggshell one when I was a kid, but now I'm thinking I might need to steal some small cousins to do the egg geodes with--those fascinate me!

  8. I am always trying to get the best value for my dollar so at first I only bought whatever brand of diapers I had a coupon for. These are the only ones that never leaked. Also, I wanted to use up all the expensive diapers I got for gifts but I wish I had just spent the money for these.
