- How do you make a snowstorm in a jar?
This project is part science experiment, to see how various materials like oil and water resist mixture, and part beautiful snow globe and the sparkles leftover make for a holiday decoration made by the kids. Follow the steps in the video and the link below to help your little ones create their very own snowstorm in a jar for winter.
- What’s the best temperature to make hot chocolate?
It’s time to warm up with some hot cocoa! But what’s the best temperature to mix the cocoa powder? Turn this holiday drink staple into a STEM research project with the kids by following the steps below and answering the question, what’s the best temp to mix hot chocolate powder at, and why? With this experiment, kids will walk away with a warm toasty drink and some scientific knowledge about how powders and liquids mix and at what temperatures.
