How To Make Your Own Ornament – Fun Christmas Decoration

Christmas is almost here! This means it is time to put the Christmas tree up. Decorating the tree is a fun time in our household. My son loves hanging the ornaments up and seeing the bright lights. He usually contributes to the decorations by creating his own ornament. This year, we wanted to share his creation with you. We will show you how to make your own personalized ornament.

My son decided to incorporate cooking science while making the ornament. He made a salt dough ornament for the Christmas tree. This is a fun DIY project for kids where they will put their fingerprints in the salt dough. Another option is to do footprints. The great thing about this activity is you probably have all the ingredients needed for this project in your kitchen. Below is what we used…

Salt

Water

Flour

Paint

Paint Brushes

Parchment Paper

Cookie Sheet

String

Fun Fall Activity for Kindergarten – How to Create Erupting Apples

Apples are in season this time of the year. I recently had a neighbor give me about 60 apples. This means making a lot of apple sauce for the family. In order to celebrate this time of year, my son and I made apples with homemade materials. Afterwards we created a mini explosion with the apples. This made for a fun fall activity for kindergarten.

Please note that kids younger and older than kindergarten age can do and have loads of fun with this activity.

My son liked this activity because he could get his hands messy with mixing the various substances. I like it because we made a chemical reaction and incorporated math by using measuring cups and spoons.

We consider this a great sensory activity for kids because they will mold the apple together using their hands. This is a fun fall science activity that you can do at home.

Fun Fall Activity for Kindergarten

The materials needed for the project are…

Baking Soda

Vinegar

Food Coloring

Measuring Spoons

How To Make A Glider With Paper – Easy Paper Airplane For Kids

Inspiration for how to make a glider with paper

I remember watching Sid the Science Kid cartoon with my son. We watched the “Sid Wings It” episode where he and his classmates learned how people were exposed to flying by observing birds in nature. They also explored a special exhibit showcasing gliders, flying contraptions, and jet planes at the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum.

At the end of this episode, Sid and his father make a paper airplane. After watching this, my son wanted to make one. We got one sheet of paper and started making a paper airplane like the one in the cartoon. My son flew this airplane and had a blast.

Curiosity is growing

Pretty soon, he started getting curious about other paper airplanes we could make that would fly higher, faster, and longer. We watched some YouTube videos but couldn’t find exactly what we were looking for.

About four months later, I found a book at the library called, Show-How Guides: Paper Airplanes: The 11 Essential Planes Everyone Should Know! by Keith Zoo. Once I showed my son the book, he gathered notebook paper and started making paper airplanes. We love this book because it shows each airplane’s airtime, acrobatics, uniqueness, speed, and distance.

Airplane with Air time

Making paper airplanes is a fun DIY STEM project where you can discuss with kids the scientific law of aerodynamics. The law has three basic components: thrust, which moves the plane forward, draw, which holds it back, and lift which keeps it airborne.

My son wanted to share his favorite airplane, which is the glider, with you. He loves this paper airplane because it loops and has a lot of air time. Plus it is easy to make and only requires one item, which is paper.

How to Make a Glider with Paper

In the video below, my son will show you how to make the glider.

Halloween Activity for Kindergarten – Magic Potion Recipe for Kids

The fall season is here but Halloween is right around the corner. Therefore, I wanted to do an activity with my son that connects with the season. We decided to do a Magic Potion Recipe that would incorporate science.

We used the classic chemical reaction of baking soda and vinegar. However, we added an element of surprise by adding some color to our magic potion. We found a way to hide the color so a person could not see it until the baking soda and vinegar reacted with one another.

This Magic Potion activity reminded me of something a magician or wizard would do in a fairy tale story. Once the potion came together, my son was happy with the results. I think your child will have the same reaction if they did the experiment as well.

The results were a colorful mini explosion that overflowed out of the glass jar. Another benefit in doing this experiment is that you can explain the science behind the mini explosion.

Why it works?

  • As the baking soda mixes with the vinegar, it creates bubbles of carbon dioxide gas.
  • The mixture creates a lot of gas, which results in the chemical reaction.

Below are the materials we used...

Baking Soda

Vinegar

Aluminum Tray

Food Coloring

Halloween Activity for Kindergarten – How To Make An Oozing Pumpkin

The fall season is here which encourages us to bring a fun Halloween activity for kindergarten. It is a time where kids can dress up and go trick or treating. However, due to Covid-19, there may be some changes in how trick or treating is carried out this year. Covid-19 has caused many people to socially distance themselves.

The good news is you can still do fun Fall and Halloween activities in the comfort of your home. I have one for you today which is called the Oozing Pumpkin.

My son requested to do this activity. He loves activities where he can create a chemical reaction or some type of light explosion.

Because there is a chemical reaction in the oozing pumpkin, we consider this a science experiment. Many kids like this experiment because it looks like the pumpkin is vomiting. The pumpkin is oozing the chemical reaction out of his month. The chemical reaction we created is called Elephant Toothpaste. My son’s exact words were “this is cool!”

Below are the materials you need for the Oozing Pumpkin…

How To Make A Catapult Easy – Fun Activity for Kids

One day during snack time, I saw my son, Cory, put a spoon on the edge of his plate. On the spoon was one of his crackers. He took his finger and pressed the handle of the spoon causing the cracker to fly in the air. My first thought was to tell him to stop and eat; however, this time I realized he was doing a science experiment.

I told my son that he made his own catapult, which is used to throw objects over a far range. This is a great STEM project for kids to do. Afterwards, I went to the kitchen and gave him a cup. I challenged Cory to get the cracker in the cup with the catapult he created. He did that for about 20 minutes and then ate the rest of his crackers.

Whenever, Cory has an interest in something, I try to use it as a fun learning opportunity for him. The next day we went to the library and checked out the book called, Make a Catapult by Meg Gaertner. This book explained the science of catapults, how they work, and its various types. At the end, it showed us how to make one with materials we had at home.

The book grabbed Cory’s attention! He was most excited about making his own catapult. After creating the catapult, we played a competitive game to see who could get the cotton ball in the cup the most times.

Below we will show you in a video how to make a catapult.

World Geography Lesson – Fun Learning Activity for Kids

World Geography Lesson – Why it’s Needed

I remember being a tenth grader in high school taking Geography class. This class was extremely boring to me. It was simply because I was not interested in learning about other countries.

However, my mindset changed once I went to college. I met and developed friendships with people from around the world from Ghana, Brazil and Costa Rica to Ireland and Japan. Being around these friends made me curious about the world outside of the United States.

Once in college, I got on an airplane for the first time to Dominican Republic. Afterwards, I traveled to countries in Europe and South America. While traveling, I realized that the locals in these countries knew a lot about the United States. They could tell me about our current President at the time and his polices. They were so knowledgable in the subject matter that they were able to debate various topics on the American political system.

I was amazed and ashamed at the same time. This made me feel guilty for thinking my high school Geography class was boring. I should have listened and taken the time to learn about other countries.

When I became a mom

Once my son was born, I knew I wanted him to have an appreciation for a world outside of the United States. It was easier for me to instill this in him, because we live in an area with a lot people from other countries.

I never thought he would be introduced to geography at the age of three. My mom gave my son an Oregon Scientific Globe for his third Christmas gift. He loves this globe because it talks. Also, it teaches you about the continents, various countries, and various cultures through games.

We use the Oregon Scientific Globe and Marble Race Track to review the continents and various countries. These learning toys inspired us to create a fun world geography lesson/game. The globe was used to identify countries and their continents. Then we picked marbles, that matched certain countries’ flags and raced them against one another.

My son and I had the most fun with the game. Watch the video below to see how we played the game and who won.

DIY Boat for Kids – Fun with Balloons and Water

I love finding materials around our home to make toys and use for science experiments. It is an excellent way to recycle and make good use of what you have. My son has adopted the habit of recycling items like water bottles, plastic tubes, paper towels and toilet paper rolls. He puts them in our science drawer. Surprisingly, we don’t have trouble finding fun projects to do with these materials like the DIY Boat for Kids.

This week we are showing you how to use household items to make a DIY boat for kids. The best thing about this project is it involves water and balloons, which are two of my son’s favorites. The DIY boat for kids incorporates the science of using wind to make the boat move.

You only need the following ingredients…

While doing this experiment, my son and I discussed how the air in your lungs is used to provide energy for the boat. You may also introduce your child to Newton’s third law of motion which states for every action, there is an equal and opposite action. Our DIY boat for kids is a great example of this law because it moves forward by the air pushing the water backwards.

This boat also makes a bubbly motor sound in the water, which your kids will love. The best part of this activity is it is easy and fun to do.

If your child is like my son, they will want to activate the boat repeatedly.

Watch the video below to see how it is done.
