Games for 6 - 10yrs Fun Science: Seperation!
Mix up some salt and pepper on the kitchen table and ask your child if he can separate it the different grains with a spoon.
Depending on how cheeky you are feeling / how much peace and quiet you need leave him/her to have a go.
Then, rub the spoon on a wooly jumper / top to create static electricity, then pass the spoon over the grains, the pepper is much finer and will stick to the spoon.
(this doesn’t work with coarse ground pepper – you need fine ground pepper – it is worth getting some for the wonder on their faces!
