    Hiya Kids… How was your winter ?

    I hope your guys have a lot showball fight… make lotta snowman…

    This time in CoolScienceExperimentsForKids.com, we gonna get ready for our annual science fair…!!!

    Don’t you guys just love it 😉

    Now, let’s get to work…

    We will be needing these stuff:-
    1.Get yourself a eletrcic egg beater

    2.A big pail
    3.One big mosquito net or a mosquito screen.
    4.Some water (Hot water will be nice but becareful with it, ask adults to help out)
    5.Scissors
    6.You & Your Friends
    7.Old newspaper
    8.A Piece of wooden plank

    Optional Stuff:-
    8.Food Colouring



    Step by step guide:-

    1.Tear the old newspaper into small pieces. After you tear the small pieces, you still can use scissors to reduce the size of the teared pieces. Please make sure all the pieces are collected in the pail else it will be very messy. Depending on how big you want your cave to be. So, if you wanna make a big one keep tearing…!!! Here is where your friends can have a little fun while helping you… What Are Friends For…? 😉

    My suggestion is to tear around 40 – 50 pages of newspaper. While your friends are busy cutting and tearing newspaper, you can ask an adult to boil some water for you. Please, please, please…handle with extra careful on the hot water.

    Collect The Pieces of Paper in a Pail

    2.Pour water into the small piece that you have just teared. Just pour enough water to cover all the small pieces. Make sure all the small piece are soak in the water. The process is to soften the newspapers. and remove colors, inks from the paper. Soak the papers for 30 minutes.At this point, you can add some food colouring to make your cave looks real.

    3.If you have time, you can experiment this. Instead of soaking the papers for 30 minutes, you can soak the papers for a week. But, be warn! It can be very stinky!!! By the time, the paper will look mushy. So, we will use a electric egg beater to turn our soaked papers into mushy papers. I just can’t wait for Cool Science Experiments For Kids…!!! Wua ka ka…

    Beat the papers until mushy, yeah beat them up!!!
