Back when I was doing chemistry demonstrations for schools and stuff, I found a series of great books by a guy named Shakhishiri that had tons and tons of good demonstrations. Recently, I found that he has a webpage that lists a bunch of the easy, can-do-at-home ones:

(Sadly, I am still on the lookout for a good carbon dioxide/heating experiment: most of the ones on youtube turn out to have a fatal flaw in that they are picking up the different convective properties of CO2, not the different radiative properties: see, 'Climate Change in a Shoebox: Right result, wrong physics" which was a nice paper demonstrating this error by using Argon as a control gas. IR camera experiments do work, but don't have the same visceral connection as seeing a temperature difference)
