This experiment is called color changing milk. It made a beautiful tie dye look!
This was a favorite for the kids and myself. They have enjoyed sharing this one with friends.
This 2 DVD set is full of fun and interesting science experiments as well as full explanations of why and how each experiment works.The website says it is for grades 1-3 but older children can benefit from it as well. My 5 year old has been loving all this "sciency" stuff.
There are 32 experiments in all including.....
My kids enjoyed watching Jason perform the experiments on the DVD as much as they liked trying some themselves. Not every experiment turned out exactly like it did on the DVD. An example was this one.....
The experiment had us hold a balloon over a candle. It popped almost immediately.
Then we used a second balloon with some water inside it. The kids guessed that it wouldn't pop because of the water.
But it did! (It wasn't supposed to.) Guess we didn't use enough water inside? So some experiments got repeated a few times.
This was a great example about how different variables can create a different outcome. The kids got really involved in trying again to get a desired result.
Do you remember invisible ink when you were a kid? This DVD shows you how to make it!
The kids wrote invisible messages on paper and then had other people in the house discover them by using blueberry juice.
I see a lot of secret messages going out in the future.
I love how almost every one of these experiments uses items found in the home already, or use inexpensive and mostly easy to find items. I love how Jason explains each concept thoroughly in an interesting way that is never boring or dry. I love how the kids will go and gather the needed items after watching the videos and then bring me to demonstrate what they saw and learned.
And I really love how all four of my kids could enjoy doing these activities together!
