More Christmas Science Experiments

Make snowman and reindeer lava lamps. These are super cute and can be used over and over again.

How about a Christmas Optical Illusion? You could make Santa appear in the chimney, and elf appear on a shelf or an angel appear on a Christmas tree.

We’ve also got some great STEM Stocking filler ideas if you need inspiration.
