These science experiments I found look like fun. Remember to provide supervision as needed and keep your kids away from harmful chemicals!
Here’s one from Martha Stewart that is actually a great way to decorate eggs for Easter too. It does require some skill because you have to use empty egg shells, but the end result is just gorgeous, isn’t it? This is definitely one we’ll try because my kids, especially, my son is crazy about rocks & minerals. He even collects rocks!
