AM: Make A Cloud In A Jar – My kids loved this simple science and so did my preschool students. Its wide age appeal makes it the perfect way to start this week of camp!
PM: What Will Rot First? – This was another huge hit with my kids, and it takes a few days so you will want to start it asap! Make sure to print off the free observation log too!
AM: Solar Powered Crayon Melt – you will need some sun for to make the crayons but if you have a cloudy day that’s OK, they won’t melt, and that will be a lesson too!
PM: What Freezes First? – You don’t have to use the same liquids we did, but you do have to trust me that this simple science experiment is a bunch of fun!
AM: Potion Lab – This is a wonderfully imaginative activity, and if your campers are as into pretend play as mine are, this will be a favorite activity long after the week is over.
PM: Herbivore, Carnivore, Omnivore? You can adjust this activity easily to different age groups with the number of animals you offer for sorting and of course your level of involvement. The idea isn’t to test your kid’s knowledge; it’s to spark interest in the subject. After doing this, you can learn more!
AM: Flower Lab – Learn all about botanical sciences by taking flowers apart with this simple flower lab!
PM: Ice Cream Taste Test – Your kids will be talking about this activity for ages! It’s such a fun way to explore taste and smell and talk about the five senses.
AM: Color Mixing Mystery – this takes the classic baking soda volcano activity to a whole new level!
PM: Sink & Float – We need to end the week with a classic and for little scientists, this activity is about as classic as it gets, and you know why? Because it’s RAD!
