My girls love cooking and doing experiments, so food science experiments are like the best of both worlds for them. It’s amazing how many different experiments you can do with a few simple pantry items and foods from the fridge. I asked my girls to help me round-up some of our favorite kitchen science experiments – a few of these you can even eat!
