Creative Unicorn Science Experiments for Kids
There is no end to learning fun with these unicorn science experiments! And what goes better with unicorns than rainbows!
Why Kids Love Unicorn Experiments
Today, science experiments for kids are more important than ever. Science and technology are huge parts of our world today, and the future will be even more science and tech-focused.
Kids who aren’t immersed in the world of science and STEM exploration from a young age will be left behind their peers, and may struggle to find work in the fast-changing landscape of future careers.
Science experiments are usually basic, but they can help spark a love of science and discovery in a child that will follow them throughout their life. The simple science experiment that a child does today may spark their desire to discover something that will change the world in the future.
Every day, young children are using science experiments to solve real-world problems in medicine and technology that have never been uncovered before. And all these scientific discoveries start with a firm foundation in science and STEM.

How to Set Up Unicorn Science Fair Projects
Every science experiment contains four elements. If you turn any of these unicorn science experiments into science fair projects, you’ll need to include:
Kids should start every science experiment with a question, even if that question is just “what will happen?”
Before doing any experiment, children should record what they believe will happen.
This is where the fun part comes into play. Test the hypothesis to determine if it answers the question fully.
A Recording and Analysis
As the test is completed, record what happened and analyze why.
Try different variables and try a new test to see if the original answer is confirmed or disproved.
