The Royal Institution have produced a series of science activities aimed at 4-11 year olds. 

They have been designed to be cheap and easy to do at home, using common household objects. Each 'ExpeRimental' comes with a video and clear instructions.

Plus, there are printable info sheets, certificates and badges to help make the most of the twenty ExpeRimental activities, half all about physics and the other half all about chemistry.

Here are some examples:

Spinema - Create your very own hand-made animations, and learn about how we perceive motion.

Rubber band cannons - Build rubber band cannons from crisp tins and drinks bottles, and use them to explore projectile motion... 

Cakes in a cup - Investigate the chemistry of cakes by making microwave mug cakes and seeing what happens when you leave out key ingredients from the recipe.
