Why Must Kids be Taught to DIY Science Experiments?

Why Must Kids be Taught to DIY Science Experiments?

Today’s kids can stand anything but boredom. Thankfully we have discovered a lot of ways to kill their boredom, and the list includes smartphones. Though it sounds crazy that your smartphones can shun them away for a while and you can work at peace, it is also important that they learn something worthwhile. Their brains are highly efficient, and they can reach great heights if they are moulded the right way. That is the reason as to why children are being motivated to try science projects at home. These are the DIY experiments that teach them a lot and motivate them to try out new things. So here are some of the reasons as to why children must DIY science.

Why Must Kids be Taught to DIY Science Experiments?

Kills boredom the right way:

We have already seen a lot about killing boredom. DIY science experiments are one of the easiest ways to cure their boredom and keep them engaged the right way. They aren’t spoiling their health mentally and physically instead they are learning a lot. Children who are going through a tough childhood and who are less interested in science can also find a way to learn it with interest.

It’s your family time:

Of course, it is the responsibility of the parents to spend time with their children. One of the biggest things that kids are complaining about is the time that their parents spend with them. Sitting and teaching them experiments and helping them to try it out on their own can help them to appreciate their parents spending time with them. This is one of the sweetest reasons to teach your kids DIY experiments.

Cost effective:

We call it DIY because these experiments do not require a laboratory set-up. Also, most of these experiments can be done with things that are readily available at home. So this is one of the cost-effective ways of keeping your kids busy and happy. They will also learn a lot of stuff. Sometimes parents and kids also learn to switch and replace things and find alternatives that can cost them almost nothing to get the same result. Innovative, indeed!

Kids get innovative:

Doing a lot of science projects can increase the creativity level of kids. As kids grow, they will also get to know the reason as to why a thing or a product causes a particular effect. That is the reason as to why they will try the same stuff with different things. Kids who are too much into science and DIY experiments have high chances of discovering great things in the course of time. This will help them learn real science behind different things.

Make early earning:

DIY is not always about science. There are also other DIY activities that kids can do. If they try and get it right, they will also have an opportunity to make an early earning. As a result, they will learn to manage their finances and learn to become better adults. Not only DIY can impact your brain, but it can also impact your life as well.

To keep your kids motivated, try getting them funny science t-shirts to set the mood and encourage them to delve into the world of science.

4 Easy DIY Science Experiments that will Blow your Kids Away!

4 Easy DIY Science Experiments that will Blow your Kids Away!

It is quite hard to manage kids, especially when they stuck at home for holidays. They often get bored and do something notorious so here are some of the interesting things that they can do. This will not only kill their boredom but will also help them learn science better. So here are some of the DIY experiments that you can do at home and fascinate your kids.

4 Easy DIY Science Experiments that will Blow your Kids Away!

A live multicolour pool:

You will need a not-too-shallow plate, food colouring(different colours), full-fat milk and liquid detergent.  Pour the milk onto the plate and drop food colour randomly at different places. Now take a small hand towel and roll it so that it is not more than the size of your palm if measured vertically. Now dip one-fifth size of the roll in the detergent and make sure it absorbs the detergent to avoid a mess. Now place the rolled towel on the plate with the soaked side touching the plate. The cool pool is ready. The final effect will look like a multicolor pool in motion.

A pool of artificial sperms:

For this experiment, you will need canola oil, a cylindrical glass tumbler, blue colour food colour, water, and effervescent tablets. Now fill a three-forth portion of the tumbler with oil. Then drop about 10 to 15 drops of the blue food colour. Add a little water to the tumbler. Now drop two effervescent tablets as well. The insoluble water droplets, the tablet and the food colour, go together and create an ocean-like effect and you will see blue sperm-like particles floating in the water.

DIY Jellyfish:

Forget the pool and the sperm thing that we did. We are crossing all boundaries and recreating science by making a living jellyfish at home, or to be more precise the effect of a live jellyfish. The experiment is quite simple, and all we need are a one-litre water bottle, a plastic bag, scissors, white string, water and blue dye. Fill half the bottle with water with the blue dye mixed with it. Cut the plastic bag into small trips and tie them together to make it look like a jellyfish. Attach it to the string and fix it to the cap. Add few more drops of blue dye and let the object float. You have your own pet now.

Foamy volcano:

Want to see a cool volcano rise to life? This is all you need. Get a water bottle, hydrogen peroxide solution, dishwashing soap, warm water, yeast, food colouring and a cooking pan. Now place the water bottle on the cooking pan and fill the bottle with hydrogen peroxide solution until it is half full. Add few drops of food colouring and liquid soap. You will also need a water solution with yeast. Now add the yeast solution slowly to the water to see your volcano erupt.
