Mention science and most children will turn their noses up in disgust. ‘Eww, boring’ is an extremely common phrase that normally follows such a statement, but why is that?
Remember being in school, feeling your eyes slowly drop as your teacher drones on and on and on about something that you weren’t really paying attention to. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. But, as parents, this is not a mindset we want to pass onto our kids.
Luckily, there are several ways you can get your children to engage with science from the comfort of your own home.
Using everyday objects that you can find in and around your cupboards, there are plenty of experiments you can try which are fun, safe and will mentally engage your children, teaching them that science doesn’t have to be boring, full of equations or ancient textbooks.
From making fake snow in your kitchen and teabag powered rockets to water that can defy gravity, this awesome little infographic by BestForTheKids.com below is full of exciting and mind-boggling experiments that you can try at home with your children, allowing them the opportunity to get hands-on with science while helping them to open their minds to whole new field of opportunities.
