Two Amazing Diy Science Projects For Kids

Two amazing DIY science projects for kids

Growing up I always knew that I wanted to do something to contribute to the betterment society. I went through several career options but nothing appealed me the way teaching did. I was always fond of all my teachers. I always appreciated how much effort they put in students in order to make them a better person. So, when it came to choosing a career path, naturally I put teaching among my top choices. I did a part time job in a school and loved the experience so much so that I made the decision of taking teaching as my full time career option.

Today, I am a grade 3 science teacher and I couldn’t be happier with the career choice I made. Last week my students asked me they wanted to see some amazing science related experiments. At first, I panicked a little bit but then I thought of trying some DIY science projects to do at home. I knew to learn some DIY experiments, I should make internet my friend and that’s what I did. I searched for DIY science projects for kids and I found a lot of easy DIY science projects that blew my mind.

Most of the DIY science projects for middle school involved going to labs and were kind of fancy. Personally I thought that it would be too dangerous to let my 3rd graders roam around in lab among various chemicals. This is the reason I wanted to do some easy DIY science projects. I wanted to make sure that the DIY science projects are kids friendly and can be safely performed around the kids. For this purpose, I made the decision to do some of the science DIY projects at home first and then experiment with them in front of my students.

There were a lot of creative DIY projects that I could do. However, I found few DIY liquid hand soap experiments that I thought to be extremely easy and yet interesting enough for my students. The best part of these DIY hand soap experiments was that they were budget friendly. There weren’t a lot of things involved in these experiments. In fact, most of the things were already available in my personal kitchen or even at the school kitchen. Out of all the DIY liquid hand soap science experiments, following are the two that I choose to perform and my students loved them.
