We’ve recently reviewed other parts of this website but we thought with the season upon us it would be appropriate to spotlight these 20 Christmas-themed science experiments. You’ll find experiments for the kitchen, the playroom and even outside. These are fun and there is something here that everyone will enjoy!

In the kitchen enjoy these: 

  • Create fizzing Christmas trees or gingerbread men.
  • Make lovely mint-flavored chocolate leaves and learn about changes of state.
  • Make some spiced apple cider and explore filtering at the same time.

In the playroom try: 

  • Making jumping snowmen or Christmas trees using static electricity.
  • How about a Christmas themed magnet or marble maze?
  • Designing some symmetrical Christmas trees.

Outside explore: 

  • Create wonderful ice ornaments.
  • Make a Christmas-themed Optical Illusion.
  • Work out how tall your Christmas tree is without measuring it.

There is much more here including activities for younger children. Bookmark this page and use it all through the holiday season.
