A Simple Saltwater Filter Experiment for Kids

Before you start this project with your kids, refresh their basic knowledge about water: Where does water come from? Why can’t we drink saltwater? Why is our water at home pure and who knows what a water filtration system is? Now, show your kids how to filter saltwater and produce their very own drinkable freshwater with this easy and fun purifying experiment.
This activity teaches desalinization (the kids will have fun pronouncing that one!), an important concept that has increasingly relevant real-world applications. You should have everything you need at home already to make this saltwater filter.
