15 Science Experiments You Can Do With Your Kids | Mental Floss

I wish I would had thought of this years ago! Love the tooth receipt so you can remember when they lost them. Need to remember this!

Chores & Allowance...I like this idea...having work to do that contributes to the family (not getting paid for) and having a few extra chores (that you get paid for) split 3 ways. Teaches kids to save, and donate, and to treat themselves with whatever they want!

Summer Game! This is a tradition that our family started for the 4th of july. We can see fireworks from our backyard but right before they start we play "Glow Stick Hunt". Its a simple game of parents throwing and hiding glow sticks around the yard and the kids gather them as fast as they can. Its a cheap game and our kids enjoy it more than the fireworks=)

Pennies of Time: "Penny of Time" Adventure: Care Kit for the Homeless. Candid Slice inspired us to make these travel sized care kits ready to hand to someone in need. It was a great way to help the boys start to understand how being homeless affects even the smallest detail of a person's life. Highly recommend this service act! Teach kids to serve.

Movie night snack necklaces....let the kids make their own before the movie

Messy Art/ Rainbow Theme Outdoor Birthday Party. Love the canvas idea! Put tape on it saying, Happy 2nd Birthday, so when the paint covers the whole canvas you can take off the tape and have a fun decoration for photo shoot.

Science experiment: Watch as the blue and yellow water travel up the paper towel and makes it's way into the empty cup making green water. Neat!

raised salt painting: create design with glue, cover glue with table salt. Touch watercolor brush on salt, without smearing and watch color be absorbed by salt. Let dry. This looks fantastic.
