Preschoolers are so much fun because everything is a game to them. They are happy to play and explore with the objects around them, which is what the foundation of the scientific process is all about! Don’t let these crucial exploration years pass your kids by. Before it’s too late, foster a love of science in your kids with these preschool science experiments.
