Valentine’s day is just a month away and many of us have already started on planning a romantic Valentine’s Day date, thinking on what gifts to buy and some will be rehearsing how to declare their love.

If you have decided to move abroad with your partner or spouse, you may find that this decision will bring about a whole new set of challenges for your relationship.

I have gathered a list of 20 entertaining science experiment ideas for kids. The experiments are really easy to make and usually, the items you need are few things you most likely already have on hand.
