Kids are innately curious, and they have countless questions about the world around them. Always looking for answers, sometimes explanatory answers, it gets difficult for adults to tackle their questions.
I wish bubbles could fill in my room, but daddy, Why do they burst out so quickly? Mommy, why do I need to wear a jacket over my sweater? And the questions can go on, with no end.
As a parent, you try the best to educate your kids. Unchangeably, kids are kids, and no matter how briefly you explain it to them, they might go round and round the same discussions.
Since the COVID-19, we not only have to feed their hunger for knowledge but keep things joyful. Therefore, we have curated a list of the top 10 easy science experiments for kids at home

The Lemon Experiment

Why do stones sink and ships float?

When your kids ask you this, it is time for you to acquaint them with Archimedes Principle. With the help of this quick demonstration, build their science foundations and get straight to the kitchen and pick two lemons, water, and a pinch of salt. When put in only water, the first lemon sinks because it has a lesser density than water. The other lemon, which in the saltwater floats, floats because it has a greater buoyant force.

Keep your flowers fresh

Have you ever failed in keeping flowers fresh? If yes, then let’s show you and your kids the right way. Flowers require nutrients for their growth, which roots provide them. Simply putting them in a jar full of water won’t help them. How about we toss some spoons of sugar and bleach in water?

Will they stay fresh any longer? To find out, pluck some flowers and follow along.

Earthworms and their love for the dark

Have you ever wondered why earthworms come out only on a rainy day? Though the tiny creatures have no eyes, they still manage to tell the difference between day and night.

We know that they do not like sunlight but adore moisture; Because their skin has light sensors on them, earthworms like only cool and wet places.  If you place them in the light, their skin dries out, and they die.

What would happen if you place them in red light or any other light? Find out here.

A careful walk on eggs

Eggs are strong. But are they that strong enough to handle the whole weight of a human body? A hen sits on her eggs for days without breaking them. Because eggs have a unique shape, they can bear strong forces on both ends, hence distributing the stress without breaking apart. But is it possible for humans to take a walk on them?

Before you break any eggs, know the complete science behind this and do it the right way.
