I know I’m almost too late with this, but as a lot of people will be stuck at home this weekend, I thought a checklist of Easter science for kids might be a good idea. The idea is that children try the activities crossing them off their list as they go. Who doesn’t love a good checklist?
It’s definitely a different kind of Easter holiday this year, but I hope you all enjoy the break as much as possible. If you try any activities or complete the checklist I would love to see them so don’t forget to tag @sciencesparks on social media!

Awesome Easter Science for Kids
Egg Drop Experiment
An egg drop investigation is a classic science experiment that every child should do at least once!
The best thing about this one is that you can do it in lots of different ways. Make a parachute to slow the fall, build a container to protect the egg, or even a landing pad for an egg!
Remember to boil the egg first then you can eat it afterwards!
Egg Zip Line
Mini zip lines are great fun and fit all kinds of themes. We’ve made them for Tinkerbell and Peter Pan as well as transporting eggs!
Egg Chain Reaction
New for 2020 are our egg chain reactions, what better way to transport an egg to a friend than by an exciting chain reaction!
You probably think of eggshells as being weak and brittle, but under the right circumstances they are actually very strong! An eggshell bridge is a great way to demonstrate this.

Try rolling eggs down a ramp or slide wrapped in different materials to discover which slow the egg down the most.
Did you know you can remove the shell of an egg with vinegar?
Who can make the tallest toothpick tower which supports a chocolate egg?
Is it boiled?
Do you know you how to tell the difference between a boiled egg and a non boiled egg?
All you need to do is watch how they spin. Hard boiled eggs spin easily and fast. The non boiled egg spins more slowly and erratically because of the liquid sloshing around inside.
A hard boiled egg will also spin on its end.
