1. Cranberries hide communications.
Why eat cranberries when you can hide messages? Write in invisible ink with baking soda and disclose the words by painting cranberry juice and sauce. This project will delight and teach your young investigators about acids and bases.
2. Create turkey balloon rockets
Balloon-powered turkey rockets demonstrate pressure, thrust, and force. Kids use a drinking straw to tie a foam, paper, and feather turkey to the string "racing track" in this STEM project. The first turkey to reach the end wins! Expect everyone to race their turkeys again.
3. Pumpkin Clock
Try a potato clock with pumpkins, sweet potatoes, yams, or other Thanksgiving favorites. Green science teaches batteries and electricity.
