Do your kids love science, and have a sick day home from school? Or, the holidays are here, and you want something different to try with Sammy and Sarah? Check out these really cool science projects you can do with your kids at home.
If your kids love science, and want to do experiments, then homemade gak, or Rubber Blubber, is your perfect recipe for a fun day in the house. The homemade gak is made of two liquids that form a solid mass, but the gak still moves! To make Rubber Blubber, you'll need borax, glue, water, and 5 minutes – all very easy to find. See how Nathan has fun with the homemade gak.
With the Sharpie Pen Science kit, you can design your own T-shirts, pants, hats, coats, etc. What you need to do is take a few Sharpie® Markers, a few drops of rubbing alcohol, and write your own story on whichever item of clothing you'd like. See how it's done in the video below:
The water and oil fireworks is a children's favourite because it's easy as pie and very beautiful to watch. All ingredients can be found in your kitchen: you'll need a vase or tall drinking glass, cooking or baby oil, food colouring, water, a bowl and a fork.

Mt. Fuji is one scary lavender playdough volcano. You can even build an entire ecosystem of trees and flowers around it, and watch it erupt.

Fuji.
The oobleck is a mixture of cornstarch and water, and it’s great fun for physics-loving kids. The oobleck acts as both a liquid and a solid. If you dip your hand slowly into it, it will feel like a liquid, but if you squeeze or even punch it, it will feel solid. If you put it on a speaker cone, it will start to dance:
There are many invisible ink recipes out there: one says that during the First World War, German soldiers mixed crushed aspirin and water to hide messages from the enemy. Today, you can mix lemon juice and heat to cover up your thoughts.

The dry ice bubble is such a cool science project, but also a great bit of Halloween fun. Take a big bowl, put some water in it, and some dry ice. Then take a strip of suds-dipped cloth, and wipe the edges of the bowl to make them soapy too. Drag the same strip of cloth across the top of the bowl and you will see big bubbles forming. See what the explosion creates:
