Children are always curious. With no schools, or staying at home makes them even more hungry to satisfy their inquisitiveness and knowledge. Kids like to explore and find out about new stuff. They are energised to learn new things. And as parents it’s our duty to channel this energy towards the right direction.
Amid the lockdown, as we are not being able to go out and explore or play, I have included a STEM Experiment daily in my little one’s routine to learn about as Everyday Science.
Scroll down here for the huge list of Easy Peasy experiments that can be done easily at home and unlock new realms of the scientific world for our little ones.
Note: Before performing any of STEM Experiments or Activities, always make sure that it is being under adult supervision, wither parents or teachers.
Almost all kids are crazy about Rainbows. Imagine what will happen if you tell them that it is possible to bring the rainbows in their hands.... The answer is you'll become their favorite person in the world.
- A tall, see-through container (I used a clean mason jar.)
- Light corn syrup
- Dish soap (either blue like Dawn or green like Palmolive)
- Olive oil
- Rubbing alcohol
- Food coloring
- A dropper
Here's another Rainbow experiment - Rainbow in a Jar. Makes kids understand the different types of liquids we use in our daily life. They understand how all liquids are not like water. They can learn about their density, viscosity or solubilities.
Make kids understand the science behind a windmill by let them making their own windmill. Though the site in this link does not provide the How To steps but I guess you can do give it a shot or search further on YouTube or Google.
