With the school year coming to a close, parents are looking for ways to not only keep kids busy, but to keep them learning about the world. Science experiments are one of the most entertaining ways for children to learn. From a citrus-y twist on the classic volcano to magnetic slime, here are some incredibly fun science experiments your kid should try.
