20 Really Easy STEM Activities using Balloons

It is so important to expose your child to science at an early age. Not only for the educational side of it but because science is such a great way to foster the wonder and awe of the world around us in your child! But exploring science at home with your little one need not be costly or difficult and that is where I can help.

I have compiled a fantastic list of 20+ fun but more importantly EASY science experiments to do at home with your preschooler, kindergartner or older child using balloons! For the majority of these experiments, you can do them today with just a few household items and a balloon, of course!

So get out your lab coat and safety googles (for fun, not for safety!) and get set to amaze your child and become the coolest mom or dad ever!
