This is just a really quick last post before Christmas that I meant to write up weeks ago, but time somehow ran away with me. I’ve got four ideas for making easy science crackers!!

The idea is that each cracker contains a simple but fun investigation you can do after your Christmas dinner. It’s great way to keep the kids busy and hopefully lead to some great chats too!

Science Crackers

Make your own science crackers

You’ll probably recognise these investigations, they’re nothing particualry special or exciting, but do make great fun and unusual crakers.

I tend to use shop bought make your own cracker kits, but you can also make crackers from scratch if you have time.

To make science crackers you’ll need

Gummy Sweets

Popping Candy

Skittles or other sweets with a coloured shell.

Hot chocolate sachet and marshmallows

Download my free science cracker page by clicking the image below and cut out each set of instructions. Place one activity with the items needed in each cracker.
