Whether you need new ideas for school or you’re simply curious and like experiments, take a look at our list of 15 cool experiments to do at home with household items.

Experimenting is so much fun. Remember those days when you were a kid? As kids, we are curious all the time and every toy we get must be inspected and carefully analyzed. Of course, that most often meant that those toys were destroyed but nevertheless, we wanted to know what’s inside. Nothing seems forbidden to us and everything can be turned into a fun experiment. Children are simply inquisitive just like cute little scientists and that is a feature that should be treasured because it’s valuable. Unfortunately, many of us tend to lose that feature later on in life due to many other responsibilities and problems. As kids, we don’t really have anything to worry about, we’re as free and unprejudiced as we’ll ever be. Our minds are open and free.

Our emotional problems or work related problems don’t really leave much space for experimenting. The curiosity we once knew simply fades away. So what are we to do about it?

Well, it may be a little bit too late for us but for starters, we can help kids maintain their interest in science and experimenting by encouraging them to engage in such activities. Why not use the potential children have to help them develop into real scientists? Who knows what they can achieve with proper support and encouragement! And you don’t have to look far to do so, you can make all sorts of experiments at home with everyday items.
