Science experiments with preschoolers!

Updated: Sep 14, 2019

Today my son ran up to me and said he wanted to do an "Experiment." It took me a minute to figure out what exactly he meant by that, but basically he wanted to mix a whole bunch of ingredients together and then add baking soda and vinegar. So I sent both of my kids outside with a bowl and a whisk. Read on to learn how to do this fun science activity with your preschooler!


Kids are born scientists! Like a good scientist, they love observing and figuring out why things happen. By observing the natural world and experimenting with different ways of interacting with it children are making creative connections. Here is a fun exercise that is sure to delight even the youngest scientist!



Every kid loves watching the reaction of baking soda and vinegar being mixed together. If you do it once, they will ask for it again and again. This activity provides them with an opportunity to mix a variety of other ingredients in as well. Stand back and watch them have a blast collecting, measuring, mixing and experimenting!
