15 Science Experiments for Preschoolers

Science experiments for preschoolers are an excellent way to engage little learners in hands-on learning at a young age!

Preschool Science Experiments

Science has always been the favorite subject in our home. From making Potato Clocks to doing the Mentos and Diet Coke experiment, we’ve tried a lot of fun science experiments for preschoolers and beyond.

Why do science experiments make such a difference in learning? It’s because they give kids a chance to explore, investigate, and be naturally curious. They’re also a ton of fun which doesn’t hurt either!

I love doing science experiments with my little ones. I'm not big on role play (although I will do it) so experiments are my go-to for fun and bonding with the kids. These are great suggestions.
