Saturday Morning Science: Choose Your Own Adventure

In Saturday Morning Science posts, I will be sharing science activities that you can do with your little ones with materials you most likely already have.  (Many of the activities you have seen before, but I think little reminders are always good.  I hope to share some new ideas, too!)  Children are naturally curious.  Letting them explore and discover the world around them helps build a foundation for future science learning.  {I got the name for Saturday Morning Science from a lecture series I used to attend at the University of Missouri.  On Saturday mornings, scientists share their research with the public in an hour long talk.}


You know how much I love Pinterest, right?  Well, for today’s Saturday Morning Science Activity, I’m going to share a few science activities I’ve pinned.  Choose one {or more} to do with your little one!

Last week, I suggested mixing baking soda and vinegar together along with other kitchen chemistry ideas.  Jamie from Hands On: As We Grow took this idea one step further when she added color to the vinegar.  {She got the idea from someone who got the idea from Pinterest – lovely how that works, huh?}

Make moon sand and cloud dough and compare the textures like Joyce from Dinosaurs and Octopuses {love that blog name btw}.
