Easy science projects for kids include butterfly feeders, shiny pennies, seed starts, magnetic boxes and wizard`s brew. The wizard`s brew requires a tray to contain the reaction.
Making the wizard`s brew requires filling half a jar with vinegar, some dish soap and a few drops of food coloring, placing it on the tray and having the child add baking soda and stirring the brew. The reaction can be prolonged by adding more vinegar and baking soda.
The seed starts project begins with the child placing a few corn seeds in a wet paper towel and placing the towel in a zip lock bag under the sun. Within days, the roots will be visible. The shiny penny experiment comprises of placing dirty pennies in vinegar to clean them, then rinsing half with water and observing the results.
