St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner. Why not try some of these fun science experiments with your little ones?
3 cups baking soda
½ cup hair conditioner
1 pkg green kool-aid
Mix baking soda, hair conditioner and kool-aid together. Shape into shamrocks and place on cookie sheet. Freeze overnight.
The next day you can let the kids squirt vinegar on them using an eyedropper. The shamrocks will fizz wherever the vinegar hits them.
Shimmery Shamrock Science
Water (works best in a squeeze bottle)
Tray or cookie sheet
Mix baking soda, kool aid and glitter in a bowl. Place bowl on a tray or cookie sheet. Add water and watch the mixture “erupt”!
1 green household sponge
1 seed packet (ie: lettuce)
A water mister
A shallow plate
Trace a shamrock shape onto the dry sponge with sharpie. Cut out. Soak the sponge so it is damp, but not dripping. Place on a shallow plate. Scatter the seeds across the top of the sponge, gently poking the seeds into the holes. Place in a sunny window. Mist often with water, don’t let the seeds dry out. Soon you should have your very own sprout garden.
