Science! It's not just for scientists any more. Whether you're a preschool teacher fulfilling the academic portion of a toddler's day, or a bored hipster who can't get a hold of your dealer, at-home science experiments are entertainment and brain candy in one. Double your fun while adding powerful new wrinkles to your cranial lobes. Here's how:
Make a lava lamp with regular kitchen ingredients. This experiment has mesmerized my son to the point where he can't sit at the dining-room table without activating his homemade lava lamps. It's made our family gatherings a little more groovy. Science Bob and his super low-key assistant will show you how.
Perhaps you would like to try something even more explosive. Like this "elephant's toothpaste" foam experiment.
But you're asking yourself, how can I do this incredible experiment at home? Science Bob will teach you.

Life is better with a bouncy egg.
It glows too.
Don't forget my favorite: Non-Newtonian fluid on a speaker cone.
Surely you've added Mentos to your Diet Coke by now?
