I'm all for a meal to keep my heart healthy. With our busy schedules making a fish dinner had the illusion of taking to much time.

The 10 Best Science Experiments for Young Kids

Science has always been my all time favorite subject, so much so that I studied both biology and chemistry in college and currently work in a laboratory. I really enjoy passing along my passion for science to my kids. There are many benefits of learning science at a young age. Kids will be able to utilize all of their senses to research and investigate. Science encourages kids to ask questions, problem solve and develop patience. Here is a list a my favorite science experiments for kids. I believe that every child should try each experiment at least once. Make sure to bookmark this page so you can come back and try every experiment. All of these experiments can be done at home with supplies that you probably already have on hand.
