Do you have snow where you live? We don’t have a lot but we have enough! Let’s be honest, one snowflake is enough in my books and while they are great fun for a snow day I know that the snow won’t last long so, let’s us it before we lose it. I have been busy rounding up some easy & simple winter science activities to try with my little ones before we are trading mittens for flip-flops. I don’t know about you but my kids just love science probably because It’s messy, interesting and arouses their curiosity about nature and our every day life. With a few materials, these winter science activities will keep kids busy on snow days!

I don’t know about you but I can not wait to try the frozen bubbles…even thought it means I have to bundle myself up to go outside and play in the snow and just between the two of us I am hoping that the soap cloud doesn’t turn into a disaster. I’m not sure how much my old microwave can handle!
