Welcome to the Saturday Science Blog Hop! This week the hop is co-hosted by Little Bins for Little Hands, P is for Preschooler, and Lemon Lime Adventures and yours truly!
Rising Up is the final experiment in the Float-Sink littleBLAST science kit (click HERE for our review) and it is a super quick one too! I’m not sure if Caden was just distracted but we only spent maybe two minutes exploring this science experiment and then was on to other things.
The objective for this experiment was to get a small bar of soap to float in some water by adding salt to change the density of the water. I set up the table with a container of shallow water, small jar of salt and a small bar of soap which were included in the kit.
First we tested whether to bar of soap would float or sink in the container of water. It sank right to the bottom!
Then Caden poured the full jar of salt into the container of water and mixed it up with his hands.
Then we tested the bar of soap again to see if it would sink to the bottom again or float.
In our experiment the bar of soap sunk about half way down and then floated. I think if we had used a smaller container the salt would have made a bigger impact on the density of the water and the bar of soap would have floated on the surface.
We have really enjoyed doing all of the experiments in the Float-Sink littleBLAST science kit. And I love that all the materials and instructions are put together in one box for me which has made it easy for me to take with us on our visits to Grandma’s house!
I have also heard from you all in my comments how neat and interesting you think these kits are so when littleBLAST offered to provide this very kit for a giveaway I jumped on the offer knowing how much you all would like it! Fill out your entry form below for your chance to win one Float-Sink science kit from littleBLAST! The winner will be announced here next Saturday! Good luck!

Danielle Ali says
They are all great but the sink float blast looks fun!
Laura @ Lalymom says
Ooh they’re all cool, I think the magnet blast looks great!
Georgina @ Craftulate says
They look great! Magnet or construction for us!
Marci Wright says
They all look interesting, but I guess I’ll choose ice blast! The building one looks especially good also!

My grandson, who is eight, would really like to do these experiements. He is always solving things and puzzles so these kits would be a great benefit to him.
sink float and magnetic blast
Looks like fun!
They all look great, but I would pick Float Sink Blast.
This is definitely something my girls would love to do. Thank you for the tip about the size of the container.
Magnet blast would be my pick 🙂
Lauralee Moss says
I’ve never seen these before! The Float Sink Blast looks fun.
Millie Dearden says
Love it!!! Would be awesome for our Summer Reading Program!
I think my kids would enjoy the ice blast.
Don’t these kits look like so much fun!? I am an outreach educator currently working with a group bringing STEM programming to the babies (kids 0-5) in our county. I would love to see these kits in every home in Kittitas County!
Oh how fun!! We would choose the Ice Blast!!
The sink float box looks like fun! We want to try that one.
The Lubricant Blast looks like a blast! My 3 1/2 year old and I love all things test-tube.
This is a fun experiment!
Thank you for stopping by the Thoughtful Spot Weekly Blog Hop this week. We hope to see you drop by our neck of the woods next week!
