Easy Chemistry Experiments

This is where to find all of An Ordinary Life's EASY chemistry science experiments.
These experiments are a safe and great way to introduce science to young children, it is also for older children to experiment with at an easy level independently.

I do try to include explanations to how and why each experiment works the way it does, some old posts still need updating, I am getting round to that.

If you enjoy my activities on here, please follow me and share with everyone.  Thank you.
