Like 90% of the world, you have probably played Pokemon Go, and maybe your kids have played with you. Many kids have, and it is a wildly popular app all around the world. That is just one reason I adore this science activity from Little Bins for Little Hands.
It is a simple science activity that only requires a few items, and is very high interest for wandering young minds. There are several possible ways you can get kids thinking while making the eggs. You can make predictions about how long they will take to melt, make eggs of different sizes and postulate how size will effect the time it takes for them to melt, track how much time each egg takes melt, talk about the temperature at which water freezes, ice melts, and more.
With only a few steps, you will have an activity kids are excited to do! There are a bonus link to a melting dinosaur egg activity at the bottom of the original article to check out as well.
