Summer is a great time to get outside! Go fly a kite. Hit the beach. Ride bikes around the neighborhood. Play hopscotch in the driveway. Sometimes, however, it is too hot to play outside. Sometimes, it rains, and the kids can’t go outside. What is a momma to do on days when the kiddos can’t go outside and play? How about some fun summer science! Below you’ll find some summer science activities that your kiddos are sure to love!
My daughter and I think Oobleck is on of the coolest things ever! This activity presents an opportunity to discuss solids and liquids. When you apply pressure to oobleck by pushing on it in the bowl, it acts more like a solid. It’s difficult to push through it. But, when you grab a handful of oobleck, it oozes through your fingers as a liquid would. Scroll down below the picture to grab a printable recipe/instruction page, and then go have some fun!
