Get ready for some super fun indoor science games and experiments that you can do with your kids today! Science is so much fun when your kids can do hands-on experiments to see everything in action. You can expand things using a microwave, make things pop (don’t worry, you won’t harm any electronics in the process) and learn about how things work. Check out these super fun science games and experiments!
Fun Indoor Science Games and Experiments
LEGO stack: Test your skills at the order in which things belong using LEGOs. Using the big ones, you can write on them (or tape paper so you can change this up) and then stack them in the order in which science says they go. So for example, using the levels of organisms from smallest to largest would go: cell, tissue, organ, organ system, organism, This is great to use for practice before a test. If you use paper instead of a sharpie directly on the LEGO, you can reuse this system.
Popcorn straight from the cob: I never knew this was possible! But it should be right? Who knew you can actually make edible popcorn straight from the cob! You do need to be sure the cob you get is dried (it just won’t work if you get the corn on the cob that you will have at your next BBQ). All you need other than the cob of course is a paper bag and a microwave! Check out this post for the full instructions, it’s pretty cool!
The Peep experiment: You know those super cute, marshmallow candies in the shape of chicks and bunnies that come out around Easter? Put them in the microwave and watch them expand! This super cute YouTuber says to give each one a toothpick and they can sword fight. (My grandma likes to eat them stale, I wasn’t aware anyone actually ate these things!) Check out her post here.
For the chemistry lover: I am not crazy about chemistry, but this game might help change my mind or at least understand atoms and isotopes better! All you need to play are beads or M&Ms and a brown paper bag and these free download printables with the instructions. This is sure to help you understand all this stuff better. You don’t have to be a big kid to understand how to play, the little ones can play too.
When things are tough, or your kids are having trouble grasping a concept, turn it into a fun game! Everyone likes games and they always seem to make learning something way more easy. So when your child is having trouble with science but loves it, try one of these fun games (or experiments) out and watch their face light up!
