Sometimes the winter months seem to drag on forever, especially when you’re stuck inside with a toddler all day every day. What do you to keep them entertained and yourself sane? We have an answer for that.

A Rigby preschool put together this super fun list of science experiments that you can try with your toddler from the comfort of your own kitchen. No going outside necessary.
Frozen Dinosaur Excavation
With this activity, freeze little plastic dinosaurs (or another reptilian animal) in balloons and then let your child use eye droppers with warm water to melt the ice around the dinosaur. It will be like they’re hatching an adorable little animal from an egg.

Hidden Colors Fizzy Fun
In this fun science experiment, you put baking soda and vinegar to the test. All you need is food coloring, baking soda, and vinegar – and of course you’ll need something to put the experiment in. Muffin tins work great.
You simply drop food coloring into your containers, cover them with baking soda, and then let your child pour vinegar over it to see what color appears.

Shaving Cream Color Mixing
With these fun sensory bags, your child can see first hand how two colors mix to make another color. All you need is Ziploc bags, duct tape, paint, and shaving cream. Put two different colors of paint into separate corners of the bags, add shaving cream, and seal the bag. The tape is to place over the top of the bag after it’s sealed to prevent your child from getting paint everywhere.

Squishing a sensory bag
Exploring Ramps
Let your toddler run toy cars down a variety of ramps. Use cardboard or wood planks to create the ramps, and add variety by using different textures on the surfaces of each ramp. You can even put the ramps at different heights to show how that affects the speed of the car.
