Easter is approaching and we want to use the holiday to also teach science. That means dreaming up Easter science projects that can double as Easter crafts for kids. We came up with some great activities outlined below. Try them with your kids and let us know what you think!
Learn about natural pH indicators, the importance of a molecule called anthocyanin, and acids and bases as you make color changing eggs. Kids will get to learn about natural dyes as well as color changing molecules as they paint lemon juice designs on decorative eggs.
Learn about reversible phase transitions (like water to ice and back to water) as you create hollow chocolate eggs. This is one of my favorite Easter crafts for kids because it’s messy, delicious, gorgeous, and educational – plus it doubles as a great table centerpiece.
This Easter science project looks at engineering principles as kids try and protect an egg from a high fall. It is so much fun to see what ideas they come up with!
