Among the many things kids will have fun learning is how to turn Jell-O into a microscope, how to make a telescope out of cardboard and convex lenses and see the stars, how to turn a flashlight into a slide projector--even how to make their own slides. These educational experiments are great for older children to do on their own, and for younger children to do with adult supervision.
