It’s Playtime! Science Experiments for Preschoolers!

It's Playtime at hands on : as we grow

After doing our lava lamp experiment, I’ve been on the lookout for more fun with science!

Especially experiments that my preschooler will find fun to do!
Here are a few experiments I found just on last week’s It’s Playtime! from my playdate friends!

[Science Sparks: What’s Heaviest?]

A great experiment from Science Sparks. Find out what’s heavier! This is a concept I need to run by Henry to find out what he knows. Being heavy or light is kind of an abstract thing to comprehend.

Even though a toddler wouldn’t understand the concept and learning behind it, it would be a wonderful activity for them too! I bet George would get a kick out of the differences of each container!
