50+ Science Activities for Kids: Kid's Co-op

Doing science activities with your kids takes advantage of their natural curiosity. They're a lot of fun to do and kids always learn something, even if the experiment doesn't go exactly as you planned it. Science activities are one of my kids' favorite projects, and I love seeing them figure things out. Luckily, the Kid's Co-op is always full of great ideas for fun ways to teach science to your kids. Here are more than fifty of them:
