Snow Volcano! Kids Winter Science Experiment

**Sorry for our pitiful GoPro video skills, we weren’t quite keeping the volcano in frame, haha!

What you need:

SNOW!

Cup

Baking Soda

Vinegar (we used cleaning vinegar, which is a little stronger)

Food Coloring

 

Just build your snow volcano around the cup. Put food coloring and baking soda inside the cup. Then, add the vinegar and enjoy the Snow Volcano reaction!

Elephant Toothpaste Explosion- Kids Science Experiment

Ryder had so much fun with this one!

Here’s what you need:

Bottle

Tray to catch foam

Funnel (optional)

Dry Active Yeast, 1 tsp

6% Hydrogen Peroxide (aka 20 Volume Developer at Sally’s Beauty Supply), 1/2 cup

Food Coloring, a few drops

Dawn Dish Soap, a few squirts

Steps:

  1. Put 1/2 cup 6% Hydrogen Peroxide in the bottle
  2. Add food coloring and dish soap to bottle as well
  3. Put 2 tablespoons of warm water (don’t heat in the microwave, if it’s too hot- it will kill the yeast) in a cup
  4. Add 1 teaspoon of yeast to warm water and stir
  5. Add yeast mix to bottle and stand back to enjoy the reaction!

Frozen Experiment

This is a fun experiment! Freeze 2 bottles of water for 2 hours and 15 minutes. Then, carefully remove the water bottles and pour the water in glasses. Then, have a small bowl of crushed ice on the side- sick your finger in the ice and get a few pieces on your finger. Then, stick you finger in the very cold but not frozen water. A chain reaction happens, and the water in the glass will freeze right before your eyes! Finn wants to be like his brother so he did a bonus “runaway pepper” experiment 🙂

 

Magic Balloon! Kids Science Experiment

This experiment was pretty funny, at least my Mom thinks my reaction was funny. I first just blew up a balloon to test what I already knew would happen when I held it over fire- it popped! Then, I put water in the balloon before blowing it up. When I put enough water (make sure to fill it up), the balloon didn’t pop! The heat passes through the latex of the balloon and heats the water. The warm water rises then the cooler water is heated and it rises, it keeps cycling to keep the balloon from popping. So cool!

Sun Burn! Kids Science Experiment

Kids Science Experiment


What Happened?

When light passes from air into glass, it is refracted. When light passes through a glass window, it curves in the glass, but because the glass is flat and smooth on both sides, the light just curves back when it goes through the other side into the air again.

With a magnifying glass, the glass is curved outward. The light takes a path toward the center of the lens. The path of the light is similar to a cone if you imagine a cone on the curved lens. There are equal amounts of light on each side of the glass lens, but the light on the side opposite the sun is concentrated to the point of the cone. Even though there are the same number of photons, they are confined in a smaller space, making the light brighter. These photons contain energy, sometimes enough energy when concentrated to start a fire!

Naked Egg- Kids Science Experiment!

Naked Egg Kids Science Experiment

Thanks for stopping by my blog! This experiment felt like it lasted for 7 years days…because it did. But, the end was AWESOME! I could see the inside of the egg!

Just put the egg in vinegar, I tried 3 different kinds to see how they reacted differently. Change out the vinegar after 24 hours and then let it sit for 6 more days. Then, VIOLA! A NAKED EGG! Just the outer membrane holds the insides in since the vinegar ate away the shell.

Can Implosion- Kids Science Experiment

Can Implosion Kids Science Experiment

Ryder the Science Kid here! My Daddy surprised me with science goggles when he came home from work today! I also learned what an implosion is, check it out 🙂


What Happened?

The water in the can heated and turned into water vapor, which pushed out the air that was originally in the can. When the can is turned upside down in the bowl of water, the mouth of the can forms a seal against the water and the vapor turns into just one or so drops of water (which doesn’t take up as much space as the gas). The pressure on the inside then becomes much less than the pressure on the outside, causing the implosion so that the pressure is balanced!
