As you can tell by our collection of science experiments & activities, we do many of them right in our backyard. This wasn't always the case -- in fact, it came about quite by accident but we now LOVE easy outdoor science activities!
Here's how it all began ...
When my son was younger, we would do quite a few of the projects inside since his little sister was a baby.
But then one day, I had this 'Mom moment' when I was cleaning up a mess for like the millionth time that week and I just make a "new house rule" -- If it splatters, stains, smokes or stinks, we do it outside!
You know those times when you say something out of desperation because you're not sure how you'll deal with one more mess, right? Well, kids actually listen sometimes :)
So the next time we were ready to do an experiment, my son said "Aren't we going to do this in the backyard?"
And that's how Backyard Science began and we haven't looked back!
I absolutely LOVE it because every Spring, Summer and Fall, we transform the backyard into this AWESOME science lab! We grab a few of our much-loved outdoor science tools and head outdoors to experiment.
So today I'm going to show you how to create an amazing Backyard Science Lab that will keep the kids inspired to experiment -- all for less than $10! And we're including 20 FREE science activities & experiments that you can try this year too.
