Science with preschoolers is easy if you remember two things.

First, you don't need a lot of expensive supplies to conduct science experiments with kids.

  • You can easily explore and discover with simple household materials.

Second, you do need an infectious sense of wonder and inquisitiveness.

  • Hands-on activities provide a medium for engaging kids in trial and error, experimentation, and observation.

We can encourage kids to explore their surroundings by providing resources, engaging in a variety of activities, responding to countless questions (even if we don't always know the answers!).
