Jingles are blasting through the local malls. Fairy lights and ornaments line the shelves. There is no mistaking the fact that Christmas is only a few weeks away! Not too long ago we put a spooky spin on our favourite science experiments for Halloween and had so much fun doing that, it was decided that we'd do it again for Christmas! Here is a list of experiments from our Free Experiments section of activities to which you can easily add a festive flair. So whether you are looking for an exciting way to conclude the school year or activities for the kids this holiday season, we've got you covered!
And here's one for after all the presents have been opened......The Egg Drop Challenge is a popular STEM activity that kids can't seem to get enough of, and thanks to an idea from this article it has taken on some festive cheer! Try this fun challenge with a special condition: you can only use Christmas decorations or wrappings from the presents!
Best to test this one outside!
