What is the best experiment you and your child(ren) have done? What would you reccomend a first time family to start with?
What ages? I would recommend something different for children over 12.
My younger kids love to make volcanoes!

I agree with the Volcanos or maybe, Diet Coke and Mentos. It's fun, cheap and easy.
Kids also like leaf rubbings. I know that's not really an experiment, but it always gets a good response.
Oh, cleaning pennies with vinegar or ketchup. Younger kids really like doing this because of how shiny the pennies get.
I've never done this but I just found it on Pinterest. Microwaving a bar of Ivory soap. It looks fun!
