When it comes to introducing science experiments for toddlers, many of us have pre-conceived ideas often from our own childhood experiences. Many of the mums I speak with expect science experiments for toddlers to be costly, complicated and even dangerous.

My school experience gave me a poor experience of science and I’ve always regretted that my teachers didn’t encourage me more. Science can be an easy and fun activity for kids to do and explore their curiosity and you can get started with science experiments for toddlers and preschool age children.

This week’s guest, Dr Stephanie Ryan, Ph.D. is a chemist, author and a mom who uses her background to create educational products and content. She can be found helping young kids explore the fascinating world around them. Dr Stephanie has taught science to all age groups, helping toddlers learn about their world.

You’ll hear some great tips and ideas from Dr Stephanie to help get you started introducing science experiments for toddlers or preschoolers, using materials mainly found within your own home.
