Easter can be more than egg hunting and candy eating. It can be fun science experiments for and parents to enjoy together.
These experiments are really simple but will fascinate your kids nevertheless. I have already tried some with my preschoolers and they asked for more. I bought a box of peeps and was able to cover three out of the 25 experiments listed below.
The experiments are grouped by category: egg, carrot and candy (peeps and jelly beans). Enjoy!
