Activity : What dissolves in water ? 

This is such a simple science activity for kids and you can do it with anything you find in your kitchen. 

Even better ask your child what he thinks will and won’t dissolve in water. Elijah thought of things I would never put .. paper milk  peanut butter ! 

Before he added it to the water I asked him if he thought it would dissolve. Mostly he got it right but some small things like soil and oil he thought would dissolve. 
Soil maybe bcoz of the color of the water he was convinced that it dissolves. 

Then I showed him to strain it and it actually hadn’t dissolved.

 We tried straining the sugar water and he saw how when it fully dissolves it came out clean.

Good learning. Try it will everything and even you might end up being surprised !
