Preschooler Play: Simple Science

Science is fun!

We've been doing some simple science in our house, using house-hold items.

For this activity you need bicarbonate of soda (baking soda), white vinegar, washing detergent, food colouring, and excited children. Pour half a glass of vinegar into a glass and add a squirt of washing detergent and a few drops of food colouring. Put the glass on a tray to catch the mess. Then give the children a tablespoon of baking soda and let them add it.

The reaction between the bicarb and the vinegar will cause bubbles to overflow from the glass. The colours and detergent make it even more fun. And playing with the bubbles afterwards is pretty fun too.

What simple science activities do you do with children? Catch up on some more fun for kids.
