We shared ideas of seed science experiments for kids last week. Today we will share weather science experiments for kids to do in the spring. As winter comes to the end, the weather is changing in so many different ways, warmer temperature, longer days, more or less rains, melting snows, strong winds, … there are a lot we can do about weather with kids. Here are some on my list.
Hands on Weather Science Experiments for Kids
All ideas here are hands on, meaning kids will make something. But all are simple to do, with no need for special materials.
Make a weather vane to show wind direction
Make an anemometer to measure wind speed.
Create a thunderstorm in your kitchen
Make a rain gauge to measure rainfalls
Create a rainbow at anytime – don’t have to wait for the rain.
Create some tiny lightning to see how lightning is formed
Create a tornado in your soda bottle
Enjoy the weather change and have fun!
