Chemistry Experiments to Try at Home Using Everyday Materials
Most kids LOVE chemistry, and fortunately it’s all around it in our everyday lives! All too often we save chemistry for high school in a formal lab when there is plenty that can be learned earlier in life.
Most of these experiments use items that are already on your shelves at home. The other experiments are easily done following a quick trip to your local grocery store.
Chemistry Kits for More Advanced Experiments
Many chemical experiments can only be done in a lab, but these days there are some very impressive chemistry experiments that work in a home school or home enrichment setting.
The Happy Atoms kit is fantastic for teaching children molecular modeling.
