Activities to do at home: Easter
Potato Chick Kids always love to experiment with food. This time we suggest you draw a chick with potato stamps. For this experiment you need yellow paint, a potato, a knife, 2 wide eyes, glue, scissors, a brush and orange construction paper. Start by cutting a potato in half and drying it very well with a paper towel. Dip one half face down in yellow paint and stamp the potato on a piece of paper. Cut out an orange beak and legs to glue onto the chicks then add the two wide eyes! The last step is to paint wings. Science Experiment: Do eggs float? This is a very simple experiment to test the laws of density and discover how easy it is to make an egg float! You will need an egg, 1 large glass, salt and water. First ask the child: Do you think eggs sink or float when they are in water? Do you think it is possible to make them float? Next, fill a large glass 3/4 full of water and carefully place the egg in the glass. What happens to the egg? That's right, it sinks to the bottom. Add at least 4 tablespoons of salt to the water and stir until it is completely dissolved. Observe, now the egg floats. Why does it float? Salt water is denser than fresh water, the egg becomes ''less heavy'' than the salt water, so it starts to float. 😊 3. Special breakfast for Easter? For what not to eat colored eggs! For this you need: hard-boiled eggs (without the shell), food coloring, baking soda, tongs, brushes, vinegar, bowl, newspaper or paper towels. Make a paste of baking soda and water and add a few drops of food coloring. Repeat in separate bowls with as many colors as you like. Using a paintbrush, apply the baking soda mixture to a hard-boiled egg (if the mixture is too thick, add a little more water to get the right consistency and allow it to spread easily). Once your egg is decorated the way you want it, place it in a bowl. Pour 1/3 cup of vinegar over each egg. Once the fizzing stops, use tongs to carefully remove your egg from the liquid and place it on newspapers or a stack of paper towels to dry.
