I've been wanting to do this STEAM melted crayon art project for a long time and we finally did it! Check out our fun crayon art and see how you can make your own!
Do you have lots of crayons that need to be recycled? You can recycle them yourself in a fun new useable shape! Crayons are made out of paraffin wax. When heated, the wax reaches its melting point and melts into the new shape of the mold you choose. Once they harden... ta da! A new crayon shape!
If your kids love skittles as much as mine do, this experiment is a must do! Your little chemist will study and learn about diffusion! While they are at it, they can also experiment and make some fun art!
Challenge your little process engineer to separate materials from a heterogeneous mixture without using their hands! They make a fun craft at the end!
If you are like me, you are currently sitting at home (due to the virus outbreak) with your family - perhaps trying to work from home and simultaneously help your children learn. While this is a great problem to have - I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the learning resources that are currently… Continue reading ‘Virtual’ Learning with Scholastics
What a better way to enjoy Valentines Day than with chocolate covered strawberries??? And even better, use it as a science project to teach kids about phase transformations and melting points. (This was also a great project for gross and fine motor skill development as well as learning to follow instructions.)

I do not know the official name for this project because I no longer… Continue reading Finger Counting Math Sheets
