These easy science experiments for kids offer a simple way to have fun at home. Whether you're child is in preschool, kindergarten, or elementary school, she'll enjoy learning how to make explosions using everyday household items. Some of these baking soda science experiments make the perfect outdoor summer activities, while others are better left for bad weather days when you're stuck inside, but all of them are ridiculously fun!

My daughter loves doing science experiments.

A lot.

And while I was not a fan of science when I was in school, I have to admit it’s kind of fun throwing different ingredients together to see how they’ll react, and the look on my daughter’s face is often priceless.

We’re currently on a baking soda science experiments kick over here, and the stuff I found on Pinterest is so much fun, I simply couldn’t resist sharing them with all of you.

We love experiments 2 and 7, and I’m looking forward to trying 9 today!

Oh! And before I forget. I recently stumbled across 3 fabulous kids activities books that are filled with all sorts of ways to have more fun at home when your kids are climbing the walls. These books have made such a difference to me on weekends and bad weather days, and I couldn’t resist sharing them with all of you: 101 Kids Activities That Are the Bestest, Funnest Ever! by Holly Homer and Rachel Miller, The 101 Coolest Simple Science Experiments by Holly Homer, Rachel Miller, and Jamie Harrington, and 150+ Screen-Free Activities for Kids by Asia Citro.
