Easter Crafts for Kids

Celebrate Easter with fun science based crafts

Easter Crafts for Kids

  1. Color changing eggs
  2. Hollow chocolate eggs
  3. Engineering challenge: Egg drops
  4. Vector treasure hunt

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!

1. Color changing eggs. 

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.

2. Hollow chocolate 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.

3. Egg drop engineering challenge

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!

4. Vector treasure maps for a cool Easter egg hunt

Learn about vector addition, or even orienteering, in this fun Easter egg hunt that combines measurements, learning directions, and vector addition! Kids don’t normally learn vector addition until high school, but they will love this Easter egg hunt idea and revel in a new way to find their Easter baskets!
