Egg-static for Artistic Science
Before putting away your plastic Easter eggs, be sure to have some fun with them! Here are a couple of ideas before putting away your decorations and reusing these eggs for science experiments and art projects.
-Tray (we used an egg carton and cookie sheets)
1. Open the eggs, place the halves into egg carton slots, and egg carton on a cookie sheet
2. Drop 1-3 drops of food coloring into each egg
3. Add about 1 TBS of backing soda
a. If you want to surprise your children, make sure the food coloring is hidden.
b. Mix the backing soda and food coloring to expose what color "explosion" they will get.
4. Fill the squeeze bottles with vinegar
*We completed our experiment outdoors*
You can always replenish materials as they play.
squirt = echarle un chorro
vinegar = vinagre
bubbles = burbujas
What color do you see? = Qué color ves?
-Plastic Easter Eggs
-Cardstock or Canvas Boards
-Plates or Plastic Trays
1. Squirt washable paint on a plate or plastic tray
2. Place half eggs onto paint
Allow your children to stamp, mix, spread the paint to create their egg-ed masterpiece.
Mix/Blend = Mezclar
Stamp = Estampar / Sellar
Spread (paint) = Untar
Circle = Circulo
What do you see in your art? = Qué ves en tu arte?
Bilingual Tip: Designate times in your day or activities throughout your day to incorporate your target language. Mondays is breakfast, Tuesdays is art, Wednesdays is outdoor - in doing so, you are exposing your child to a variety of vocabulary.
