8+ Outdoor Spring Science Experiments

Now that winter is finally behind us, it’s time to jump headlong into spring!

Here in Texas where I live, April and May are the perfect months to get out in the sunshine before it gets too hot during the summer months. We are big fans of STEM activities for kids. We love all STEM activities, but particularly we love science! Spring is the perfect time to try out the following science activities, because you can do all of them outdoors!

Fantastic Fun and Learning has some amazing garden science experiments for kids. These look like they would be such fun to do with kids outdoors!

If you have leftover Easter candy, you might want to try out these PEEPS candy science experiments! They were a lot of fun. If you still have even more leftover PEEPS, you could also try these marshmallow engineering activities. I recommend doing these projects outside because they can get quite sticky!

This egg science experiment from A Moment in Our World looks like a lot of fun because it has that “wow” factor that will really keep kids interested. In case it goes wrong, outdoors is the best setting for this project.
