Shamrock science for kids

Three great ways to add a little St.Patrick's Day fun to kids science play. Twist things up a little to make it look and seem different to them using some house hold items.

How to make Shimmery Shamrock Science

Mixed baking soda, green kool-aid, and glitter all in a bowl, then placed water in a squeeze bottle and made it erupt.

How to make Erupting Green Shamrocks

I mixed our fake snow mixture together and added green kool-aid to it for the green color, then placed it in a silicone shamrock mold and let them freeze over night.  That made them hard like rocks. Then I placed them on a tray/pan and the kids used pipettes to squirt the vinegar on them for them to fizz. We had Fizzing Shamrocks.

This is a great fine motor skill for toddlers and preschoolers using the pipettes.

We have made fizzing rocks before but never thought about putting them in molds til I saw it at Science Sparks from Pinterest.

Make your own Glittery Shamrock Play Dough

You can make this 3 different ways use regular store bought play dough, kool-aid play dough, or gluten free play dough. Then just add some fun glitter to it and play away. We also added mint extract to this batch for a yummy smell.

Also, hold down the space bar key with two or more fingers and try to create an explosion of spacebar hits with your entire hand instead of just using the finger muscles.
