Museums are great weekend family activities, but be careful with coronavirus, which is still affecting public attractions.

Science experiments

weekend

If you’re looking for some fun science experiments for weekend family activities, you can try some of these simple ones. This experiment teaches kids about density and how different liquids have different weights and masses.

experiment

To conduct this experiment, you’ll need two large clear containers and several small household items. Then, ask the children to write down their predictions of what will happen. Compare those predictions with the actual results to learn about the scientific method. Ultimately, your kids will be able to see and explain the results of their experiment. 

for kids

Another great science experiment for kids is a simple one involving vinegar and milk. The result of the reaction is a change in pH, which causes the milk to curdle. This result produces a plastic like substance called casein. To do this experiment, you’ll need safety goggles, 8 drops of food coloring, and one tablespoon of liquid dish soap. They will enjoy Baby Take a Bow with Shirley Temple, Top Hat with Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire, Young Tom Edison with Mickey Rooney, National Velvet with Elizabeth Taylor, or anything featuring Laurel and Hardy.

perform

This experiment is simple enough to perform by most kids, though younger children may require assistance. Kids will enjoy seeing the change in state of liquid and gas and will be introduced to new vocabulary words, such as water vapor, condensation, and pressure. 

many activities

Some of the easiest science experiments can be done at home, and they're also completely safe and educational. Many of these activities can be done with simple household items, such as baking soda and vinegar.
When you're looking for simple experiments to perform at home with your family, make sure to include the backyard in your list. One activity uses vinegar to teach kids about chemical reactions, while another uses the energy of the sun to make a solar s'mores oven.
There are many activities that you can do with your kids on the weekend. Some of these include cooking together, taking a walk, or going on a family adventure. Cooking is a great activity for the whole family, and it also helps to teach kids about healthy eating and cooking skills.

coding class

Other activities include taking a coding class or joining a club that helps children learn how to make games or other technology. Kids can even learn about the night sky by downloading a star chart from the internet. Fresh air is also good for kids’ health, and can help them sleep better at night.
