Water Science with Clifford the Big Red Dog



Hey neighbors!

Here is a neat little set for doing some water science experiments with your child at home.  It is recommended for ages 3+.  The set comes from The Young Scientists Club and is one of there Science Kits for Little Hands.  Most young children will recognize Clifford the Big Red Dog and enjoy doing these fun water experiments.



The kit contains most everything you will need for the experiments.  You might have to add something like, an empty soda can, a squirt of dish soap, or a pinch of pepper.  Most items will be found in your home.  A book is included featuring Clifford, explaining the water experiments.




I will share with you here one of the experiments we did.  I don't want to share too much, because I want you to have fun doing these with our own child.  I will tell you a few of the other experiments, so you will have an idea of what can be done.  For example: your child will learn about floating and sinking, three phases of water, colored celery and making rain.




We decided to share jumping pepper.  You fill the bowl in your lab tray with water.  sprinkle pepper on the water so the entire surface is covered.  Add some dish soap to the small measuring cup.  Using your pipette add a drop of dish soap to the middle of the bowl (on top of the pepper).  Observe what happens.




You can find the Clifford the Big Red Dog Water Science kit on The Young Scientists Club website.  You will also find many other kits for varying ages.




Just a little information:
Industry leaders have been calling for just this sort of fun and educational STEM activity for years. The path to a quality STEM education starts early, before kindergarten, and we need to engage throughout the education process, not just at the college level.  To that end The Young Scientists Club’s Water Science kit explains the simple water experiments with catchy titles like icebergs, phases of water, water cycle, making rain, colored celery and more.  No magic wand is needed for the Magic Science kit, young explorers uncover the real science behind experiments like funny mirrors, building a kaleidoscope, magic rainbow glasses and more. All the Clifford kits can come each month directly to your home if you wish to order the company’s mail-order subscription series.

Be sure to follow them on their social media.
