Cool science experiment for kids! Rainbow Roses Get white of cream colored long stem roses. (Carnations work well too). Cut the stem according to the picture, you will then place 4 glasses of food color dyed water together. Put one piece of stem per color and allow the flower to soak up different colors.
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.
Weather: Fill the cup with water. Put shaving cream on top for a cloud. Explain that when clouds get really heavy with water, it rains! Then put blue food coloring on top of the cloud, and watch it rain. Kids love experiments!

Balloon rockets! Easy fun activity for kids! I love the educational aspect of the experiment as well! You can explain how real rockets work by exploding fuel inside a chamber that is open at the bottom. The force of the explosion creates an opposite force that pushes the rocket up and into space. Cool!
