Remember one thing, you are never too old for fun stuffs. So, don’t worry and lets get messy, light some stuff on fire, and use food products in ways they were never intended! Parents and teachers across the internet have found fun ways to teach kids science, and have documented the experiments for the rest of us. Here are Top 5 easy and fun science experiments that will make you giggle. Add joy and share the fun of scientific experimentation with friends and family members.

Safety comes first. Be sure to follow each instruction carefully. So, here are Top 5 easy and fun science experiments..

MAKE SLIME

Ingredients that you will need:

1/4 cup of water
1/4 cup of white craft glue (like Fevicol or something like that)
1/4 cup of liquid starch (used for clothes)
Food coloring (optional)
Mixing bowl
spoon

Methods:

First pour all of the the glue then all the water into the mixing bowl.

Stir the glue and water together.

Add your food color now – about 6 drops should do it.

Now add the liquid starch and stir it in.

It should be nice and blobby by now. As you play with your slimy concoction, it will become more stretchy and easier to hold.

Explore your slimy creation and store it in a zip bag when you are not using it.

BUILD A FIZZ INFLATOR

Ingredients that you will need:

One small empty plastic soda or water bottle
1/2 cup of vinegar
Small balloon
Baking soda
Funnel or piece of paper

Methods:

Carefully pour the vinegar into the bottle.

Loosen up the balloon by stretching it a few times and then use the funnel to fill it a bit more than half way with baking soda. If you don’t have a funnel you can make one using the paper and some tape.

Now carefully put the neck of the balloon all the way over the neck of the bottle without letting any baking soda into the bottle.

Ready? Lift the balloon up so that the baking soda falls from the balloon into the bottle and mixes with the vinegar. Watch the fizz-inflator at work!

A Color Symphony

Ingredients that you will need:

A flat tray (like a cookie baking tray)
Food coloring (at least 3 different colors)
Whole milk – low fat milk will not work for this experiment
Liquid soap used for washing dishes

Methods:

Carefully pour the milk into the tray so that it just covers the bottom

Add about 6-8 drops of different colored food coloring onto the milk in different spots

Add about 5 drops of the liquid soap onto the drops of food coloring and watch the show!

To clean up, simply pour the colored milk down the drain. (don’t drink it!)

The Exploding Lunch Bag

Ingredients that you will need:

One small zip-lock bag – freezer bags work best.
Baking soda
Warm water
Vinegar
Measuring cup
A tissue

Methods:

Go outside – or at least do this in the kitchen sink.

Put 1/4 cup of pretty warm water into the bag.

Add 1/2 cup of vinegar to the water in the bag.

Put 3 teaspoons of baking soda into the middle of the tissue

Wrap the the baking soda up in the tissue by folding the tissue around it.

You will have to work fast now – partially zip the bag closed but leave enough space to add the tissue. Put the tissue with the baking soda into the bag and quickly zip the bag completely closed.

Put the bag in the sink or down on the ground (outside) and step back. The bag will start to expand, and expand, and if all goes well…POP! May you like the best pocket microscopes also.

BLOBS IN A BOTTLE

Ingredients that you will need:

A clean 1 liter clear soda bottle
3/4 cup of water
Vegetable Oil
Fizzing tablets
Food coloring

Methods:

Pour the water into the bottle.

Use a measuring cup or funnel to slowly pour the vegetable oil into the bottle until it’s almost full. You may have to wait a few minutes for the oil and water separate.

Add 10 drops of food coloring to the bottle (usually red or green, but any color will look great.) The drops will pass through the oil and then mix with the water below.

Break a fizzing tablet in half and drop the half tablet into the bottle. Watch it sink to the bottom and let the blobby greatness begin!

To keep the effect going, just add another tablet piece. For a true lava lamp effect, shine a flashlight through the bottom of the bottle and this one is my favourite among these science experiments.
