Introducing children to science at a young age assists in their brain development. Science experiments can be performed on young children. Using materials in experiments that children like to play with helps them to grow big ideas and understand fundamental concepts. The following lists easy science experiments for toddlers and preschoolers to introduce them to the world of science.

Invisible Ink is a great science experiment that enables children to create invisible art and make it magically appear using lemon juice! 

Dancing corn is a fun sceince experiment to do with toddlers and preschoolers. Watch corn dance with a little kitchen chemistry.

Elephant toothpaste erupts a foam that children can create in this experiment that resembles toothpaste being squeezed from a tube.

The 11th of February is International Day of Women and Girls in Science. It enables us to honour women’s significant achievements in science and place a much-needed focus on girls entering Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) careers.

Rubber Egg

Make a hard egg bounce by adding it to a cup of vinegar. This is a great STEAM experiment to try with children - make different colour "egg balls" and watch how vinegar dissolves the hard shell to create a bouncy egg. 

National Science Week is Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology and it is held from 12 - 20 August 2023.

In this STEAM project, children will be creating a lemon volcano. These lemon-smelling volcanoes create bubbly small eruptions which you can make in your learning environment with some easily available items in the kitchen. 

Here are some simple science experiments, using all the colours of the rainbow! Great way to teach primary and secondary colours through science! 

Children will be excited to see how the colours transform overtime as the water moves from one glass to another.
