We’ve just broken up for the Easter holidays and I have big plans for lots of fun Easter Science Experiments while everyone is off school. I’ve put together a collection of old favourites, new ideas from us and some great Easter science activities from other bloggers too. If a STEM Challenge is more your thing, we’ve got some easy Easter STEM Challenges to try as well!

Easy Easter science experiments and investigations for kids. Grow cress in an eggshell, make a naked egg, build a tower with eggshells and more Easter science for kids #easterscience #scienceforkids #easterinvestigations

Egg Experiments for Easter

Save the Egg

Build a vehicle designed to save an egg in a collison. We used K’nex, but you could use LEGO or even wrap the egg in different materials and drop it from a height.

Try an egg drop experiment with a twist, we made ours Humpty Dumpty themed. Maybe you could build him a wall too?

Eggy Experiments

Find out how to make an egg you can’t break. This involves a bit of science trickery, but is great fun to impress your friends.

Did you know you can make an egg bounce. You just need to remove its shell first!

Roll eggs down a ramp wrapped in different materials to see how each affects the speed of the egg. This is a great activity for learning to think scientifically. Remember to keep the gradient and length of the ramp the same for each test.

Find out how to remove the shell from an egg without touching it?

Make a very cool spider egg in this clever activity from JDaniel4’s Mum.
