Science at Play: Part III

It’s been a busy, busy weekend on the homefront.  Gorgeous weather led to some impromptu yardwork and spring cleaning along with lots of playing in the sun and a family picnic in the backyard. All that means two things: I’m up way too late writing this so I’ll be keeping it brief and the nice weather has me thinking about summer.


What do these two things add up to?  My third science at home roundup. (Because it’s a relatively quick post and I know from past experience you’ll love it.  Plus who amongst us can’t use a little extra learnin’ come summer?)  Without further ado, here are my latest top 5 ways to play Mr. Wizard with the kids:


  1. Make Your Own Balloon Car… And Watch It Go!
  2. Yummy Gummy Bears Diffusion Lab
  3. DIY Stethoscope
  4. Magical Plastic Bag Experiment
  5. Elephant Toothpaste
What do you think? Which one will you attempt this week?  If you really want to go all out, see this impressive-yet-totally-doable home science lab.

Thanks for including our plastic bag experiment in your fun list! I think we’ll be making a DIY stethoscope one day soon!
