Our Fav Experiments For Kids

Kids should do scientific experiments as well as watching them, for the same reason that they should write stories as well as reading them or do sport as well as watching it. Experiments encourage kids to be curious, creative and confident. Jokes make us laugh because the punchline takes us by surprise. The best experiments do the same.

To help you encourage your children to be curious and creative, we have complied a list of our top 5 experiments for kids.
