11 Cool Science Fair Projects from Pinterest
by Rachel Slaff
At a loss on how to help your kid win the day at her science fair? We love these easy experiments found on Pinterest.
We’ll always make time for this potato-powered clock from OC Mom Activities. It’s a science fair classic.
Over the rainbow
Warning: These rainbow flowers from Paint Cut Paste may not be the best choice for klutzy kids (spilled food coloring? yikes!), but young gardeners will love the colorful end result.
What childhood is complete without Gak, the squishable, squeezeable putty toy and modeling compound? This how-to from Come Together Kids is perfect for younger scientists. Just don’t call it Goop.
Not to be confused with Gak, Goop is a great project for learning about solids and liquids. Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas has an easy recipe!
Trick or treat
Rinse and repeat
“Exploding” Ivory soap is an undeniable Pinterest sensation. But have you tried it yet? Wendolonia provides an easy how-to. (Don’t worry, Mom, it doesn’t actually explode—more like mushrooms into a wild un-soaplike shape.)

Start your engines
Physics isn’t just for high schoolers. Help your little one to learn about force and motion with this race car experiment from Librarianism Chronicles.
