Some science projects for kids are making a vinegar volcano, tornado in a bottle, creating an easy lava lamp and making a rainbow. These projects are hands-on, safe and simple.
The vinegar volcano uses baking soda and vinegar to demonstrate a chemical reaction. The tornado in a bottle uses water, glitter and dish-washing liquid to teach children about the vortexes that form in hurricanes and waterspouts.
The lava lamp is an oil and water experiment that requires only water, oil, food coloring, a clear bottle and an Alka-Seltzer tablet or other fizz tablets. Making a rainbow utilizes sunlight, water and white paper to demonstrate the color spectrum.
