Exploding bags with baking soda and vinegar-science lesson. They take off like rockets!
Another science fair idea: Make rainbow roses by splitting the stems into strands and placing each one in food coloring. The roses draw the food coloring into the petals. Im gonna try this just for kicks lol
Earth Science Unit.....A great visual to explain plate tectonics and the formation of volcanoes and mountains. So many other engaging (and easy to replicate) Earth science activities on her site!
make magic sand - build castles under water - the sand stays dry!!!! This site has fabulous science projects....
Alka Seltzer Blob Bottles!! - Such a great craft to do with kids! Need: 1 Liter (or any size) bottle, regular water, cooking oil, food coloring, and Alka Seltzer. Pour 3 quarters of a cup of water into the bottle, then fill the bottle the rest of the way up with your cooking oil. Next you want to wait for a little bit or until the water has settled at the bottom of the bottle and the oil at the top of it. Then pick your favorite color and pour about 8 drops of the food coloring into the b... Water Drops, Plastic Bottles, Craft, Homemad Lava, Food Coloring, Lava Lamps, Kids, Alka Seltzer, Oil

Crystal Egg Geodes... and other "mad scientist" ideas for kids.
milk + vinegar = plastic
Cool science experiment! Dissolve egg shell off with vinegar and it will become a "naked egg" that can bounce... how fun!
A volcano in a mug. Neat idea to show kids how they work. Much more accurate than the old baking soda/vinegar idea.
Storm In A Tea Cup
Walking Water- Science experiment for young children. Please tell me that yellow liquid is food coloring! ;)
oil and water fireworks science experiement - would be great to do as a short demonstration before an elementary art project involving oil pastels and watercolor. might help students understand why the two don't mix. :) Firework, Mad Science, Scienc Experi, Food Coloring, Oil Pastels, Den, Art Projects, Science Fun, Kid

TEABAG ROCKET: Amaze your kids! How it works: “Everyone knows that hot air rises and this experiment demonstrates that idea as well as the principles of convection currents. As the tea bag burns, hot air is being created, as well as a thermal, or convection current, under the bag. When the tea bag burns down into a small enough ball of ashes, the convection current causes it shoot up in the air.” [Quoted directly from Steve Spangler Science.]
