No matter how young your kids are you can start introducing them to simple science experiments. Brooke, from our favourite YouTube channel WhatsUpMoms, had Danica McKellar aka that girl from The Wonder Years on the show where she demonstrated three fun, cheap and easy science experiments with your kids.
Even if they are a bit too young to understand the science behind it, the Non-Newtonian Fluid experiment is great for sensory play with toddlers and the slightly older kids will get a kick out of the lava lamp experiment.
