We found some awesome Easter Science Activities to try!
When I am looking for something interesting to do, I often combine STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) ideas with the holidays or seasons. In this case, I found some great science and STEM activities for Easter.
All of these use simple things you likely already have at your house making them easy to do and easy on mom too!
For more fun try our Easter Egg Drawing Challenge and turn STEM to STEAM by adding in art.
Easter Science Activities
I found a lot of neat science and STEM activities that you can do for Easter.
They include Easter eggs, Peeps, Jelly Beans and plastic Easter eggs as well. You know your kids will have fun with all of these ideas!
Easter Egg Science
Using real eggs, a few supplies and a bit of science you can do Easter egg science activities!
Colorful Volcano Eggs
You have to try this one! What a fun way to decorate eggs and get some science in at the same time. This takes a baking soda and vinegar volcano to a whole new level. Volcano Egg
Bouncing Rainbow Eggs
Have you heard of the science project where you can end up with eggs that bounce? Here is a variation on that with bright rainbow colors. Not only will they be able to make their egg bounce and break, but they will learn the science behind it and find out something interesting about an egg yolk.

Make Crystals on Eggshells
Aren’t these geodes amazing? I think they are beautiful. You will need to plan ahead a bit for this one as the crystals need time to develop on the eggshells. To get really big crystals it can take several days.
Peep Easter Science
Whether your family loves to eat peeps or really can’t stand them, you will have to grab some to do these fun projects.
Get your physics (a fundamental science) as well as engineering and math in with this project centered on build a catapult to launch peeps! Peep Catapult
Engineer a Peep House
Can you build a house for your Peeps? Think gingerbread/graham cracker houses for Easter. Engineer a Peeps House
Jelly Bean Science
Grab the jelly beans! They can snack while they learn about engineering and reactions.
Jelly Bean Engineering
Grab the Jelly Beans and the toothpicks and see what sort of engineering sculptures you can create.
Jelly Bean Structures
Jelly Bean Reactions
How do jelly beans react in different liquids? What happens when you wait specific amounts of times? These are just the types of questions a curious child would be interested in finding the answers to. Jelly Bean Reaction
Plastic Egg Science
Most of us have some plastic eggs hanging around and they are just right for these Easter science activities!
Plastic Egg Parachutes
Neat! A parachute project with plastic eggs looks like a lot of fun to make. Encourage your kids to try different ideas to see which fly the best. Plastic Egg Parachutes
Plastic Egg Rockets
This science activity is always fun and they gave it an Easter twist. Make a plastic Easter egg explode!
