Teaching Science concepts for toddlers are easier than you think. Simple Science experiments are one of the great ways to teach the basic concepts for toddlers as they are with full of curiosity.
Anyway, don’t try to be too academic. Instead of that play with simple Science experiments while allowing them to grab the concept.Learning while play is always working for toddlers and young kids as they enjoy the moment while absorbing the basic concept behind it.
These easy science experiments are popular at our home and my toddler loves each and every activity while playing with fun! I had so much fun too when introducing these activities for him.
If you are looking for easy and simple ways to do some science experiments, try these, you also don’t need to prepare with lot of materials or equipment for these easy Science experiments.
Observe the displacement of water
This is a really simple science experiment for toddlers and kids. Use a glass full of water and ask your toddler to put stones or coins into it. Observe the water level rising. Use water up to top of the glass and also till the mid-level of the glass for different experiences. This experiment will give the basic idea of water displacement.
Add colour to water
This will be a fun activity as toddlers love to play with water. Add different colours to water and ask your toddler to mix water with colour. Observe the change of colour of water.
This is one of the really simple science experiments which you can do with your toddler. Add some ice cubes to a bowl of water. Observe the melting ice. Also it is good to experience the cold water while ice cubes are melting. This will be a simple and fun activity for any toddler.
Add some food colouring for water before making ice cubes.That will add more fun for your Science experiment with your toddler.Different shapes of ice is another idea!
Make ice cubes
Fill an ice cube tray with water and keep in the freezer. Show your kid what happened to water once the tray is inside the freezer for some time. He will surprise but he will also learn that water becomes the stage of ice when it is inside the freezer .It is a basic concept, but toddlers will learn that fast!
Use a basket of water and add rubber toys into it. Rubber toys will float while coins and stones go to the bottom. It is a simple and fun activity to do with a toddler.
Science activity kits
If you like more organized way of doing science experiments with kids and toddlers, then it is always easy to use Science activity kits.
