Grab your white coats and clip boards because it’s time to do some science! We have 4 great science experiments in stall for the whole family, from testing facial expressions, sight smell and texture, to creating a super weird new food, this activity sheet covers all the bases. So grab your fruits, veggies and snacks because this is going to be a fun one!
With the end of first term just around the corner, your kiddies have learnt a great deal of new and exciting things such as; new fruits and veggies, colours, numbers and that we can taste all sorts of strange things like sweet, salty, sour, bitter and Savory things, yum!
With this in mind, we have put together a crazy science experiment that you can do with your little ones during the break, they can then write down their scientific findings in our free to print activity sheets.
Taste testing different foods is a great way to get kids excited about trying foods they would normally ignore. Engage with their brains by asking them what they taste, the colour of the food, it texture and let them think about if it tastes good of not. This is your chance to get creative with the foods that you include in your kids taste test, don’t be afraid to mix and match foods. You can even try altering the taste of food with smell!
Did you know! Without smell, we cannot enjoy all the flavours of food. Smell makes about roughly 80% of what we taste! Crazy right?
With our free to download activity sheets, your kiddies can try different ways of tasting foods, like being blindfolded and holding their nose to trying foods that look the same but taste different and have different textures. These are a great way to get your kids thinking and engaging with different food groups.
Lets create a monster! the final activity in the download, lets the kiddies the foods they have tried and create a weird science experiment by combining three ingredients together to create a strange creature!
