Easter Science Activities Kids Will Love
I’ve said it several times before, but I’ll say it again – Easter is probably my favorite holiday. As a child, it truly seemed even more magical and wonderful than Christmas, if you can believe that. I think part of the fun is that you get to run around outside for hours looking for eggs filled with treats and prizes. I loved going to church, participating in the egg hunt and spending the rest of the day with my family.
Unfortunately, I don’t remember many fun learning activities for Easter from my childhood. We did crossword puzzles and coloring pages, sure, but as a girl who loves science (biology majors, holla!), I would have loved something truly fun and explorative, like these Easter science activities. From fizzing eggs to dissolving peeps and lots of fun activities in between, you’ll find an engaging activity that will capture your child’s attention, guaranteed!
