5 Super Home Experiments for Little Scientists

Children are real little ones: they love to discover, to ask, to find out how it works. We can teach them a few simple home experiments! These do not require too much money or too many special tools.

Heart glass

With the help of a glass of glass, we can teach children that different fluids are different densities. You will need a larger bottle of glass, food colors, a dropper and the following fluids: honey, corn syrup, dishwashing water, olive oil and alcohol. Carefully, one after the other, the stained liquids were poured into the vessel without being touched to the side of the glass. You finally add alcohol to the top with a dropper (if you poured in, it would mix with the rest of the stuff). Stop the glass!You can try it at home

Home light

The lantern is a real retro specialty, but most parents still remember how exciting and comfy it was to watch the colorful bubbles. Color half a glass of water with food coloring and fill with a second glass of oil (roughly up to three quarters). Carefully pour the water into the oil, being careful not to fill the glass! Break some of the effervescent tablets (eg antacids) into larger pieces, then place them in aqueous oil. The oil and water do not mix together and the effervescent tablet forms bubbles which, when connected to the water, bring the colored drops to the surface of the glass.

It is a very complex experiment that requires food inks, kegs, and some utensils (or smaller glasses), as well as strong paper towels. Cut the paper towel into strips and place the water stained with food in the glasses. Carefully place the paper towels in the glasses so that one end is in one glass and the other is in the other. Within a short period of time, you can observe the water "absorbing" on the fleece and the way the colors mix.


Not only an experiment, but also a guide! Fill a sealable bag (such as a freezer bag) with water for up to three quarters and carefully filter a well-sharpened pencil over it. The water will not run out! The phenomenon in the background is that the plastic consists of a bag of polymers that are long molecules that the pencil actually removes from one another, but try to rearrange them to their former positions. In other words, the pencil actually closes the hole.


This experiment requires a little more time. Fill an ice cream bottle with vinegar and carefully place an egg in it using a spoon. Vinegar will slowly dissolve the egg (more specifically, it will react with the calcium in the egg). It takes almost three days for the egg shell to disappear completely, and the eggshell to wipe itself off with fluids, and it can be gripped freely, well pressed! (Via)Also worth reading:
