I just came across this amazing resource from Science Sparks: a free ebook on science for the early years, full of fun experiments you can do with a classroom of kids or with your own child.
There’s some really fun stuff in here like painting on ice, making a snow volcano (maybe we’ll get enough snow for that this year!), looking at fingerprints, magnet mazes, boat racing, making zip lines for dolls and more.
I know my daughter (first grade) would love a lot of these activities, so they’re not just for the preschool set.
