Every kid has a little mad scientist hiding inside of them, and nothing is more fun than spending a little time dreaming up mixtures that bubble and steam and overflow! Here are 10 crazy concoctions you can whip up at home to satisfy their need to explore and create.
Food Colors, Elephant Toothpaste, For Kids, Science Projects, Science Experiments, Food Coloring, Hydrogen Peroxide, Mad Scientists, Baking Soda
Lots of great, easy science projects on this site. The one pictured is called "elephant toothpaste," and requires only a small water or soda bottle, a funnel, hydrogen peroxide, a little dish soap, food coloring, and a packet of yeast. So cool! And the name alone will have kids talking about it for days. It is for the kiddos, but I can't wait to try it :)
MAD SCIENTIST Elephant Toothpaste. Mix desperately: 2 tablespoons of water w 1 tsp Yeast. Add 1/2 cup 6% or higher of hydrogen peroxide. Then pour in your yeast mixture. Quicly add food color drops and squirt of fish soap for bubbles and color. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) naturally breaks down into water and oxygen. It is stored in opaque containers to help slow down this process. Catalase (an enzyme in all living things, including yeast) speeds up the reaction. Dish soap catches the ox
Science Experiment: Elephant Toothpaste 1. Set a soda pop bottle in the middle of a pan to catch the toothpaste. 2. Mix these in a separate container and swirl together for a minute. The yeast will catalyze (or speed up) the reaction. Woo hoo! ** 2 Tablespoons warm water ** 1 teaspoon yeast 3. Mix these in your soda pop bottle: ** 1/2 cup 6% hydrogen peroxide. It is important to use at least 6%. You can use 8% or more (available on Amazon), or you can Salon Care Professional Stabilized Formula. 20 Volume Clear Developer from Sally Beauty Supply works fine too. 3% from the grocery store will NOT work as well. :) ** 4-5 drops food coloring ** squirt of dish soap 4. Pour the yeast mixture into the soda pop bottle...and be amazed! If you're working with older kids, you may be interested in how it works: The reaction is summarized by this formula: 2 H2O2 --> 2 H2O + 02. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) naturally breaks down into water and oxygen. It is stored in opaque containers to help slow down this process. Catalase (an enzyme in all living things, including yeast) speeds up the reaction. Dish soap catches the oxygen and makes bigger bubbles and the food coloring makes it look cool. The foam and bottle feel warm because the reaction is exothermic--it releases energy as heat.

sunflowers using hand prints (school families bulletin board)
What a great children's project. The kids traced their hands (about 8 of them on yellow construction paper) and cut them out for the petals. Crumpled tissue paper for the center and it's all glued onto a paper plate. Love it! I could think of a new start to the year bulletin board where most of the flower with each kids name is put up ahead of time. Perfect for Kansas!

A calm jar. You fill the jar with colored water and glitter. When you are upset you shake the jar and have to watch it until the glitter completely settles. The time it takes is enough time for you to settle your emotions.

A Calm Down Jar. Shake the jar and the child has to watch the jar until the glitter settles. Good idea for children and adults!
A calm down jar... shake, watch the glitter settle, calm down :) What a good idea for kids (and adults too, haha)
A Calm Down Jar. Shake the jar and the child has to watch the jar until the glitter settles. It would be great to link this idea with the colors of the Six Healing Sounds. For example, a blue glitter jar for the kidneys, breathing in peace and breathing out fear.
a 'calm down jar' - shake the jar & the child has to watch the jar until the glitter settles. (use plastic jar so if it gets thrown in a fit of anger you don't have glitter everywhere!)How to make: Just mix 1 tablespoon of glitter glue, per 1 cup of hot water, add extra glitter (I used an extra small tub). A note: The first Mind Jar I made was red and Pix didn’t like it. She told me that red was “an angry color” and then requested a blue Mind Jar “because blue is like the happy ocean”.
I love this idea: A calm jar. good idea for kids! You fill the jar with colored water and glitter. When you are upset you shake the jar and have to watch it until the glitter completely settles. The time it takes is enough time for you to settle your emotions.

Adorable idea. Pop bottle jet pack. Cute idea and inexpensive for a Halloween costume.
DIY Jet Pack for HOURS of fun! Step 1: Spray plastic bottles with plastic primer. Let dry. Step 2: Spray bottles with your favorite silver spray paint (doesn't have to be plastic specific.) Let dry. Step 3: Adhere bottles to a piece of cardboard, approximately the width of the bottles next to each other. Let dry. Step 4: Use ribbon to create backpack-like straps. Adhere. Step 5: Cut crepe paper strips to create flames. Glue the tops of the strips to another piece of crepe paper. Let dry. Step 6: Accordion fold the top strip of the flames. Glue to the inside of the bottle tops (which are actually the bottom of the jetpack.) Let Dry. Step 7: Run around the house making flying sounds with your mouth (or let your kid handle this step)

DIY glow jars -2 ways I know of making them: (1) cut up glow sticks in a jar and shake the liquid out, add glitter, cover w/lid & shake; (2) paint inside of jar with glow in the dark paint, add glitter and shake.

For when the time comes... The truth about Santa letter to your children.
the truth about santa, letter to your kids who busted you... .Have to remember this to keep the Christmas magic
The truth about Santa Here’s what I wrote: Christmas magic Dear Lucy, Thank you for your letter. You asked a very good question: “Are you Santa?” I know you’ve wanted the answer to this question for a long time, and I’ve had to give it careful thought to know just what to say. The answer is no. I am not Santa. There is no one Santa. I am the person who fills your stockings with presents, though. I also choose and wrap the presents under the tree, the same way my mom did for me, and the same way her mom did for her. (And yes, Daddy helps, too.) I imagine you will someday do this for your children, and I know you will love seeing them run down the stairs on Christmas morning. You will love seeing them sit under the tree, their small faces lit with Christmas lights. This won’t make you Santa, though. Santa is bigger than any person, and his work has gone on longer than any of us have lived. What he does is simple, but it is powerful. He teaches children how to have belief in something they can’t see or touch. It’s a big job, and it’s an important one. Throughout your life, you will need this capacity to believe: in yourself, in your friends, in your talents and in your family. You’ll also need to believe in things you can’t measure or even hold in your hand. Here, I am talking about love, that great power that will light your life from the inside out, even during its darkest, coldest moments. Santa is a teacher, and I have been his student, and now you know the secret of how he gets down all those chimneys on Christmas Eve: he has help from all the people whose hearts he’s filled with joy. With full hearts, people like Daddy and me take our turns helping Santa do a job that would otherwise be impossible. So, no. I am not Santa. Santa is love and magic and hope and happiness. I’m on his team, and now you are, too. I love you and I always will. Mama
