We call my oldest the future "ist" because ever since she was 3 or 4 she's shown a big interest in wanting to become something in the field of science. The front part has changed from a geologist, astrophysicist, chemist, and so on, but the ist part is still very much a constant.

That being said, we're always looking for fun experiments to do around the house.

Thanks to Stateline Kids, we'll be trying these at our next backyard bonfire.
