For the smaller ones: put their brain to work!
Learning while having fun
For the chemistry lesson, you will illustrate a reaction between baking soda and vinegar. Put your gloves and goggles on and prepare to be amazed. Some specific guidelines:
- Use vinegar and baking soda (about 4 to 6 tablespoons), as well as a plastic cup, tray, dishwashing detergent (one teaspoon), and paint. Clay, sand or gravel would be ideal to form a mound.
- To conduct the experiment, you need to fill the cup with water until it is two-thirds full.
Add the baking soda, dishwashing detergent and paint.
- Form a volcano around the cup with clay, sand or gravel. Pouring the vinegar into the cup will cause your volcanic eruption!
Why not indulge in an Easter egg painting session? You will first need to empty your egg by drilling a hole at each end of the egg with the help of a pushpin. Then blow into one of the holes to empty it. You can also use another object such as a ping pong ball to avoid waste. Funny, but also practical, you can then use their masterpieces as decoration, or hide them in the garden (or in the house) to celebrate Easter.
