Few nights back, I narrated the thirsty crow story to my son. He was fascinated by the crow but didn’t really get to comprehend how the water could rise and how easy was it for the crow to drink water after that.
Then I thought it won’t take too long to pull together this simple experiment.
I promptly grabbed in some stones which we had at home, a jar and a spoon to set this up.
My clever cookie is working on his spoon skills nowadays and so I offered him a wooden spoon to drop the stones.
While he dropped in the stones, he saw tiny bubbles blow up and couldn’t contain the excitement.
He also learnt a new word “splash” when the water speckled each time 🙂
And voila, we watched the water level rise and ooze outside.
We also did this sugar dissolving activity. This is a pretty much simple activity where the child stirs in sugar to watch it dissolve.
I added in some food coloring to make a distinction when the sugar is added and stirred.

Science was my favorite subject all through my school days. Few weeks back, while I cleaned my pantry I got my hands laid on some baking soda. Voila, there was plenty I could do with that. I did a small R&D for some basic science experiments and found tons of information online.
And here is a few which I and my toddler experimented together. The fascination in his eyes, that look was priceless. So here you go!!
- Baking soda with Vinegar
Colored vinegar and baking soda
This one is a classic science experiment we did in school. Pour in some vinegar into a glass mixed with food coloring. Spoon in some baking soda to see fuzzy reactions 🙂
Fuzzy Fuzzy Reactions 🙂
- DIY Snow
Shaving foam and baking Soda
I followed exactly the same instructions on this blog. Man, it really did feel cold like a snow. Honestly, I have never seen a snow, let alone touch it. Thanks to the tropical country I live in. But hey, no regret after getting to touch this SNOW 🙂
Cold as Snow 🙂
- Milk Firecrackers
You must watch this video. I was smitten after watching this and jumped on to try this with my toddler. My little Jing Jang was hooked for a long time playing with this 🙂
- Ice cubes and Salt
Salt and Ice cubes
Again this one is taken from this blog. I did not have those cute little dinosaurs so we used some Jewels as treasures 🙂
Please don’t mind this crappy picture 🙂
I am looking forward to more science experiments to do with my little toddler. Guess who is learning science the right way, all over again?
