FUN WATER SCIENCE CAMP IDEAS FOR SUMMER

SUMMER KIDS WATER SCIENCE CAMP

Kids of all ages are going to have a BLAST with Water Science Summer Camp! This week of activities and projects is full of fun and learning. From capillary action to physical changes, and even a DIY bouquet of flowers, kids will love exploring all the things you can do with water. Extra fun when it’s a hot week!

SCIENCE ACTIVITIES FOR KIDS THIS SUMMER

Summer can be a busy time, so we didn’t add any projects that will take a ton of time or prep to make these activities possible. Most of these can be done quickly, with variations, reflection, and questions extending the activity as you have time to do so. However, if you have the time, feel free to linger and enjoy the activities too!

Kids who get to participate in this Chemistry Summer Camp will get to:

  • Walking Water
  • Icey Challenges
  • Leak Proof Bag
  • Painting with Skittles
  • And more…

TEACHING KIDS WITH SCIENCE

Science encourages curiosity and asking questions. These simple science experiments below will also encourage problem-solving skills and observation skills. Even the youngest of kids can enjoy a simple science experiment.

What can you do with water? Water is a fantastic and budget-friendly science supply! Of course, water is a liquid which is also a state of matter, so there is a lot to explore. Try out mixing oil and water to make a lava lamp (must try), or use science to make a bouquet of flowers to give away, and of course, check out what happens to skittles when put in water!

Encourage your kids above all to never stop questioning and by all means, try to answer those questions as best as possible or show them how you can find out the answers together.

MELTING ICE CHALLENGE

Can you stop an ice cube from melting? Or… what substance dissolves an ice cube the fastest. Look for three experiments or challenges to try with ice.

WHAT DISSOLVES

A classic science question and experiment… what dissolves in water? Is it sand or pepper or sugar?

DROPS OF WATER ON A PENNY

How many drops of water can fit on a penny? Test out fine motor skills and surface tension all in one!

WALKING WATER

This colorful experiment is so easy to put together, but kids love watching what happens to the dyed water as it travels!

Walking Water

OIL AND WATER

Truly a classic… make a homemade lava lamp and explore liquid density and chemical reactions!

LEAK PROOF BAG

Can a plastic bag really not leak when you put a pencil through it? What kind of magic is that? Oh, it’s just chemistry!
