Easter (and Springtime in general) is such a great time of the year! It isn’t too hot, or too cold and everything outside is starting to bloom. In addition to our Passover Science Experiments and Lesson Plan, we put together a fantastic list of Easter science experiments like how to make unicorn poop slime out of Peeps, or fizzing, rainbow Easter eggs. We will also work on math using jelly beans, do tons of free printable Easter reading and writing worksheets and make Easter bunny origami bookmarks! You will even learn the history behind Peeps! But before we start, don’t forget to join our Facebook Group and “like” our Facebook Page, so you won’t miss out on any of our educational fun!
