This fun and easy experiment helps youth learn about the concept of density. By layering different solutions of colored sugar water, this activity is not only visually intriguing, but introduces youth to a scientific concept they observe every day. For this activity you’ll need, water, sugar, food coloring, 5 clear cups, and a pipette or straw.

Density Experiment

Does your household have more toilet paper or canned food that usual? If you’ve gone through some rolls of TP or eaten some servings of canned beans, this grouping of activities will give you some fun ways to recycle your TP tubes and tin cans! Craft projects range from making wind chimes out of can lids to villages constructed from toilet paper rolls.

TP Tubes & Tin Can Crafts

Watch Alex’s easy-to-follow video tutorial on how to make your own moon sand! Using few ingredients that you most likely already have on-hand, this alternative to traditional sand is convenient and tons of fun to play with! Try adding food coloring to dye your sand.
