Balloon ExperimentKids’ Science Projects with Everyday Objects

Turn everyday objects into big question marks as the kids explore and hypothesize on what they really are. Cereal will no longer simply be yummy squares of sugar after the kids learn the mineral make up of the crunchy snacks. Their itty-bitty brilliant brains will start to break down objects further than face value. A water bottle and a balloon aren’t just for drinking and decorating as you’ll learn with the Balloon Experiment. Keep expanding those mini minds with Other Science Projects:
