Simple Science Experiments for Children, Easy Experiments for Kids, Science Made Easy for Kids
Human beings are naturally curious. We love to know everything about things, especially in our early years, when all that surrounds us is new and unknown. It is then when our brain has a real thirst for knowledge.
When children are born, they explore and experiment with the world around them. They watch, touch, taste, and ask questions. They should actively participate in each of the learning processes. One of the best ways is with experiments.
While experimenting, children can learn and play at the same time. It is a way to "feel" all the information they are receiving and transform abstract concepts into real ones. Experiments have many benefits, such as increased ability to pay attention, follow instructions, memory, fine motor skills, problem resolution, and enhanced mental processing.
Experiments allow children to learn lots of things without getting bored. It is a way to promote their interest in learning and investigation. It also enhances their autonomy because we allow them to think by themselves.

Put the balloon in the plastic bottle, as shown in the image below. Raise the balloon to allow the baking soda to get into the plastic bottle.
Children will see how the balloon blows up without using air. Here is when we explain to them that putting these two ingredients together creates CO2, and that is why the balloon blows up.
