Explore the world of science with some cool fun science experiments. Kids are so curious as to how things work from a very early age.
We’ve had this book since Bobby was about 5 years old. We continue having fun doing many of the experiments with him and his younger brother Tyler.
This Cool Science Experiments book is always at our house. Many times when Bobby and Tyler visit we find ourselves grabbing this book to have some fun.
My wife and I take great pleasure in watching them learn new things.
Cool Science Experiments contains 365 fun and amazing experiments. Cool Science Experiments was written and tested by teachers. You will find six different fun sections in this book. All designed for kids ages 4 to 12 years of age.
All activities are designed to use common everyday household items. Well, the only problem is, if you don’t have that common item handy you’ll have to go out and buy it. Most of them are inexpensive. We’ve made several trips to the store to pick up items for a particular experiment.
The book is illustrated by Glen Singleton, Glen is well known for his illustrations, kids cartoons, and popular children’s books. In each of the six sections, you will find a list of symbols indicating things like adult supervision, for all ages, or because of the tools needed for the experiment, such as scissors.

All are very well illustrated with step by step instructions and pictures. There is also a place for the kids to take notes in every section of the book. They can document the date, the experiment, and write notes about what they learned.
Here is an experiment from the Chemistry section. I’m sure you have all the materials needed for this experiment on hand. Find out which liquid an egg will float in.
Tyler has found out that egg will only float in salt water. Because salt water is denser than the egg so it floats. Who knew? I didn’t, so even the adults can learn something new.
