School is back in session! Keep your child's mind engaged with hands-on lessons whether they're learning in the classroom or from home. Science projects are a great way to teach kids something new about our planet while challenging their creative skills. Learning and having fun at the same time? Is that even possible? It totally is with these awesome science project ideas kids can make with nontoxic Aleene's Glues.
Here's a science project idea kids can do while learning about animals. Have them choose their favorite animal, and while they're studying, they can do paper-mache to create the animal's face as part of their project. They can make it true to life, or put their own spin on it with different colors. Get inspired with this paper-mache leopard tutorial that uses nontoxic Aleene's Original Tacky Glue.
The best way to learn about nature is to get out into nature! This science project idea encourages kids to head outside on their own treasure hunting adventure. Have them collect different items from around the yard or a hike somewhere, then use them to create their very own maze game. They'll get to learn about the different items they're collecting, like trees, pine cones, shells, etc. And as a bonus, they'll have a fun game they can play to enhance their motor skills! Grab a bottle of Aleene's Quick Dry Tacky Glue and head outside for a project that keeps the fun going.
This science project idea will also launch kids' creativity into orbit! Capture their imaginations as they learn about space with this rocket ship craft that doubles as a cool toy after the project is done. With a little help from Aleene's Original Tacky Glue, paper towel tubes and colorful paints, this science project will help them discover a whole new world of curiosity and creative ideas.
Make learning about how the weather works a little more fun and a lot more colorful with this easy science project idea. Studying about wind, clouds and rain is even more exciting when you can turn that knowledge into rainbows! This adorable rainbow craft uses paper plates, colorful pompoms and felt with Aleene's Fast Grab Tacky Glue. Once their project is done, the kids can hang their rainbow on the wall or in a window to add some extra cheer to their space.
Kids will get a chance to spread their creative wings with this science project idea!
