Science Experiments Perfect for Summer

Welcome! New to ABC and 123? Please check out our FAQ in the sidebar.

Quirky Momma shared a summer bug painting experiment. As she explains, her son loved this activity and explored with both living and non living things.

Sippy Cup Central submitted this post explaining how to create fizzy jello volcanos. Fun!
This recipe for homemade bouncy balls from Sippy Cup Central would make inquiry and exploration a ball.
Quirky Momma used dandelions to watch how plants soak up water. Her children loved watching the stem spirals "pop." Perhaps this experiment could be replicated with various summer blooms to make comparisons.

Heather and her children used colored ice cubes to discover how colors mix and change. In the summer sun this experiment would bring quick results.
