Summer time is time for parents to think up some interesting science experiments for kids! Find some neat scientific experiments for kids here.
With the advent of summer, it is time for parents to think up of exciting science experiments for kids that are easy, fun yet rewarding.
Let us have a quick glance at these 5 fun science experiments for kids that 6-8 year olds will find cool and are apt for their age too.
Instead of reinventing the wheel, we asked the teachers over at Merry Go Learn to share with us some of the best experiments for kids – experiments that kids at their classes love.
(Merry Go Learn offers scientific education for kids using a completely fun, hands-on, activity based approach to strengthening core concepts. With classes for students in Grades UKG – VIII, they supplement traditional education with ‘learning by doing’. If you are based in Bangalore, check out their useful programs.)
Here is their list of science experiments for kids, experiments that are creative and full of learning too.
Let your kids create an ingenious lava lamp and understand density and solubility (oil & water don’t mix, heavier liquid floats on top). Follow these basic steps to ensure you don’t get baffled in the middle of the project.
What you’ll need:
500ml or 1l Plastic soda bottle, vegetable oil, food coloring, eno salt, water, vegetable oil
Tip: Switch off the lights in the room and place a strong flashlight under the bottle for better effects
This science experiment for kids cum fun activity is good for your health too! Get your child to work out the quantities needed to make this drink for varying numbers of people, in the process, understanding fractions better.
What you’ll need:
4 tsp lemon juice for 8 glasses
5 cups crushed fresh black grapes for 10 glasses
10 tbsp strawberry crush for 16 glasses
2 cups crushed ice for 6 glasses
Mix the ingredients in definite proportions in accordance with the number of people it is being prepared for. Salt and honey can be added as per the taste.
This activity is about designing your own parachute and teaching your kid about air-resistance in the process! When an object falls, there are two forces that act on it, gravity that pulls the object down and air resistance, that acts in the opposite direction. This experiment teaches kids how the two forces interact.
A plastic bag or light material, Scissors, String, A to act as the weight, a little action figure would be perfect
Tip: Cutting a small hole in the middle of the parachute will allow air to slowly pass through it rather than spilling out over one side, this should help the parachute fall straighter.
These entertaining science experiments for kids will give you and your child something fresh to do this summer!

Did the creators of Masaba Masaba just wake up one morning, go to the sets and decide to create something absolutely random without putting any thought into it?
Anyone who knows about Neena Gupta’s backstory would say that she is a boss lady, a badass woman, and the very definition of a feminist. I would agree with them all.
However, after all these decades of her working in the Indian film industry, is her boldness and bravery the only things worth appreciating?
The second season of Masaba Masaba (2020-2022) made me feel as if both Neena Gupta and her daughter Masaba have gotten typecast when it comes to the roles they play on screen. What’s more is that the directors who cast them have stopped putting in any effort to challenge the actors, or to make them deliver their dialogues differently.
Sullu vows to never, ever speak to Renu again. Every time, a Hindi film song extolls the virtues of ‘Dosti’, she feels a tide of anger within her.
Sullu arrives at the duck-pond and seats herself on ‘their’ bench.
Two girls are standing near the edge of the pond. Around seven or eight years old, they are clutching a bag of food in their hands. They call out making cooing sounds.
Sullu knows what will happen next and watches with amusement.
