Book of Christmas games and impressions

My Christmas mini book to print and play It's free and contains six simple Christmas drawings. scientific experiments which mostly use only the paper they are printed on (and maybe some glue, scissors and tape).

Print, experiment, then recycle the waste!

The activities are virtually hassle-free and come with easy-to-follow instructions.

If paper research isn't exactly what you're looking for, I have plenty more. Easy Christmas science experiments attempt!

1. Spinning sleds

Use the paper template to make three spinning sleds. Attach a paper clip to the end of each and drop them from different heights or add additional weight to see how it affects the speed of the fall to the ground.

Another idea is to make larger or smaller spinners and investigate how the size of the spinner affects how fast or slow they fall and spin.

2. Holly's Magical Opening

Cut out the holly and fold the leaves. Place the carefully folded holly on a plate or tray of water and watch the leaves open to reveal the berries. This simple science trick works because paper is made of fibers that expand as they absorb water.

Visit my magical flower opening activity for a full explanation of the science behind it. Paper opening in water.

3. Christmas Tree Shadow Puppets

Cut out the shape of the Christmas tree and create festive and fun shadows on the wall. To do this, you will need a flashlight or a light source. Try moving the flashlight towards the shadow tree and then further away to investigate what happens to the shadow.

5. Salsa races

The template for this activity forms a mini ramp for you to compete with your favorite holiday sauces. Gravy, applesauce, and cranberry sauce all work well.

This type of viscosity run It's always fun and can be done on a larger scale, as well as this mini version.

Remember, thicker (more viscous) liquids flow more slowly.

The idea of ​​this activity is to move the maze so that the water reaches the reindeer without crossing the lines.

This can also be done with other liquids, such as syrup. Thicker liquids should be easier to move through the maze!
