100+ Preschool Science Activities & Preschool Science Experiments!!

Preschool science experiments are my favorite way to engage preschoolers in learning and discovery!

These preschool science activities and experiments can inspire, motivate, and encourage your kiddos to get involved in science!  Preschoolers are natural little scientists!  They love to learn about, touch, and investigate their world.  Most preschoolers will discover their own science projects as they explore outside, in the kitchen, and with manipulatives.  Kids love to experiment!  Let them mix, match, and check things out (with safe supervision, of course!).

I encourage everyone who works with kids to let them explore at least one science experiment every week.  The activities on this page are a fantastic place to start--we have done them all and loved them!  Choose one, or let your kiddos choose one, and see where they take it!

A lot of these science projects are also fun for older children.  If your kids can read, let them choose an experiment or follow the directions.  Just remember that all the science activities here are meant to be done with appropriate adult supervision!

This page is a collection of all the science experiments, science projects, and preschool science activities here at the Preschool Powol Packets blog.  It is a HUGE resource!  I'm sorting them for you by subject, so you will find the following themes with dozens of posts under each one.  You can also hold down the "ctrl" key on your keyboard and click the "f" key at the same time to pull up a search bar and look for specific topics (like pumpkins, fizzing, exploding, rain, etc.).

And be sure to save this page and pop back again--when we do new preschool science activities, I will add them to this list!
