Valentine’s Day Fun Part 2

Uploaded: Feb 14, 2021
Last week we enjoyed watching Steve Spangler’s Facebook Live about science experiments for Valentines Day. We thought it would be a lot of fun to give our Valentine’s Day celebration a science twist this year.

1. Colorful Carnations: Instead of using carnations, we used endive just to try something new. I was very impressed by how quickly the colors were absorbed and how intense the colors were after only a few hours.

2. Secret Messages: These FriXion pens were such a fun way write secret messages to each other. I wish there was a safe way for our kids to erase the messages themselves, but it was a lot of fun to watch the ink disappear when I used the heat from our stove.

3. Heart Skittles: We’ve enjoyed this experiment many times over the years. But it is always fun to see the different colorful patterns and designs. What a cute twist to put the candies into a heart shape.

4. Salt painting: We did salt painting earlier this year with snowflakes. It was a hit and much easier than I expected. The watercolors blend together nicely. This afternoon we are planning to use this technique to make Valentine’s Day themed designs.
