Spring Science Experiments for Kids
Spring is when flowers are blooming, and the weather is finally warm enough again to head outside. It’s time for some fun spring science experiments!
As the school year starts to come to an end, we are preparing some fun ways to keep learning until the end of the year!
One of my favorite ways to do this is by creating interactive science experiments that my kids can do! These are great for learning about all sorts of concepts and a great addition to any homeschool lesson plan!
These science experiments are mainly for preschool and elementary kids, but you could use them for any age range with adult supervision.
