Fun Experiments to Try Out This Winter Season

Nov 22, 2017 12:00 AM


With winter approaching, the longer nights and colder temperatures tend to create a gloomy atmosphere, especially for kids. There isn’t much to do apart from sitting in front of the television or playing video games. Parents often struggle to keep their kids engaged in positive activities. So why not plan ahead and do something different this year? We have compiled a list of ideas for you to try with your little ones which are sure to keep both kids and grown-ups happy. It’s a win-win situation.


Learn About Science

Make learning fun for kids by trying out some amazing experiments this winter. Let your kids learn about science in a fun and interesting way. There are lots of fun activities related to science to get your kids involved, which can be both entertaining and educational at the same time.


Activities to Do at Home

Children have an inquisitive nature and science experiments are an excellent way for them to satisfy their curiosity while learning more and staying occupied. Introduce your kids to interesting facts about science in a way they will definitely enjoy and remember. Try out some simple temperature experiments like creating snowflakes right at home, your very own ice lanterns or how about creating some gooey, blue putty for all the Frozen fans? The ideas are endless!


Fun in the Cold

Make the most of the cold and let the kids have some real fun involving snow. There’s a lot you can do apart from making snowmen. Have you ever tried making a snow volcano? Get the kids involved in the Christmas preparations and make some ice decorations with them, to hang outside. Let the little artists in your house get their creativity going by making some pretty ice paintings. You can even use basic kitchen ingredients and make dazzling ice crystals to display outside.


Explore the Outdoors

Freezing temperatures don’t necessarily mean you have to be stuck at home. Get the hats, mittens and jackets out and take the kids outside during their days off by looking for fun activities in your area. Ice skating, skiing and snowboarding are great ways to get rid of boredom. For the days when you don’t want to go far from home or spend too much, how about going around the neighborhood collecting autumn leaves to stick in a scrapbook?


Remember, your kids won’t stay little forever. Spend time with them while they need you. Get them involved in interesting activities and create family bonds and everlasting memories. For more interesting ways to get your kids in love with science, visit our website and book your little scientist a party today!
