We LOVE Science in our house! In fact, I recently found one of my books from my childhood that has some really easy and cool science experiments in it. My parents and I did all kinds of experiments from the book as I grew up. I think my favorite science moment was when I built a water filtration system out of 2 liter bottles, and other cool things. I actually won the Science Fair that year! It was too cool!
Check out some of the really awesome science experiments below! If you get a chance to try them, I’d LOVE to know how you do!!! I know we’re going to work on a few of them here at home with my girls very soon!
