Kids love experimenting; this is how they learn about the world. Therefore, science experiments with kids are a perfect family activity. Simple science experiments you can do at home with your kids are a fun way to introduce children of all ages to basic scientific concepts.
One of the easiest ways to impress them is by demonstrating kitchen chemistry science using some simple foods and by letting them explore everyday foods.
Because it turns to a particular color if you add different foods to it, red cabbage juice is an excellent pH indicator. The easiest way to impress a young scientist is to use baking soda and vinegar. Most importantly, you can find these in every kitchen.
So, all you need for this easy science experiment is:
- red cabbage
- all sorts of different food ingredients you can find in your kitchen
Add five red cabbage leaves and a cup of water to a blender and blend it well and then strain it. You will need only the colorful water for your experiment. Add soda. Add vinegar. Ad kitchen soap. Add different foods…
Just let them experiment with everything they can see around. And finally, enjoy the time spent together.
