Kitchen Table Science Experiments on Family Fun Friday

A couple of years ago Joel received Gospel Light's Big Book of God's Amazing Creation for a Christmas gift.

(This post is not intended to be a book review but I will say that if you are looking for simple science experiments to do with your children at home (or in a Sunday school setting) this book is for you!)

A few weeks ago Joel pulled out the book and conducted a some science experiments at our kitchen table.  Who says you can't have school on Saturday?!

Unfortunately not everyone had fun.  Due to the messy nature of the experiment Sam was strapped into his booster seat and pushed an appropriate distance from the table (meaning- he couldn't reach anything!).  It didn't take long for him to get bored watching us.

A bored little Razorback.

Will, Ben and Ellie LOVED the traditional volcano experiment!  I'm not sure who had more fun - the kids or Joel and I watching them.

Do you ever conduct science experiments with your family?

Family Fun Friday is a weekly column.  Feel free to leave a link in the comments to your own posts about a fun activity your family has recently experienced.

I'm glad he's finally using the book! My children LOVE to do science experiments, and we've really enjoyed many of those from this book. We're somewhere in between the early childhood and elementary stages--the really simple ones are often boring, but the really complicated ones are too much. I just look for something I have all the ingredients for! --Lara

Todd and Caleb made rock candy using a mason jar, a washer, water, string a pencil and some sugar. He LOVED that. I need to post some science experiment pictures. Science is Caleb's favorite subject and he LOVES experiments.
