Safe Drinking Water 

There are a few different ways to teach kids about safe drinking water.

Grab a water testing kit and use any water outlet around your home to turn this water experiment into an educational experiment that teaches kids about water safety. 

Don’t have access to a water testing kit? You can also learn about pH (acidic and basic) properties using items found in your kitchen.

Last but not least, your kids can learn how to remove salt from saltwater in this Water Desalinization Project to create safe drinking water.
