Many times when I talk to parents about doing science activities with their children they express anxiety over doing the science correctly, making a giant mess, or the difficulty and expense of obtaining special materials.
I’m here to tell you that some of the best science at home can be done for FREE. Or almost free, at least.
All of the activities listed below are simple kitchen science experiments that can be done with materials you probably already have. Things like food coloring (LOTS of it), vegetable oil, salt, milk, eggs, baking soda, vinegar, and food scraps you were going to throw away anyway.
