Ah, the holidays! A time for cooking, crafting, and decorating together... to discover holiday traditions... and some really cool science! Keep your kiddos engaged, exploring, and entertained with activities like the physics of wobble elves and the science of stretchy dough. Kids can get creative with block printing their own wrapping paper while playing with patterns and tessellations. Blasting off a balloon-powered sleigh will demonstrate what's science in action and what can only be explained by the magic of the holidays. The special holiday edition Discovery Kits are jam-packed full of explorations to keep creative little hands and minds busy.
