The HAND Science Challenge



So how does Lizzie make that glove blow up? Watch the video above to take the challenge. 

Did you guess how Lizzie blew up the glove? 

Watch the  video below to see if you were correct!

Floating Eggs

What? Why? How? 

Children need to e challenged not spoon-fed with facts! 

They need to question. To predict. To investigate. This is the first of a series of challenges for children. They are suitable for children from about four years upwards.  Children learn by ‘doing’ and all the challenges are simple enough for them to perform themselves with adult supervision. 

This first challenge is all about floating and density. 

The first video shows the challenge. 

The second video repeats the investigation and then answers the questions. 

My suggestion is that you watch the first video then perform the challenge asking the questions 

Later the second video giving the solutions can be watched.

Make a fun Cloud Lamp


Don’t pack all those Christmas Lights away! 

The small battery powered type can be used to make fun Cloud Lamps.

It’s an easy and fun craft activity your children will enjoy sharing with you.

Questions often asked by young children are ‘What are clouds?  How are they made?  What do they feel like?’ 

Well, Lizzie Witch is very good at catching clouds!  

She is also very good at answering those tricky questions.

Crayon Melt Pictures 

These are really fun to make and introduce the concept of ‘melting’ to children. 

The technique also improves coordination. 

All you need is a small Canvas board, a pack of crayons. Some glue and a hairdryer. 

The fun video featuring Lizzie Witch attempting to melt the crayons is sure to motivate children to ‘have a go!’ 

Adult supervision and help is needed .

Make a cute Jumble Spider for Halloween

Halloween is only a month away and it’s never too early to start preparing AND it’s fun! 

Make this cute spider for virtually nothing ….  it’s made from a small section of a pair of black tights so you could make enough  for a class of  kids from one pair of tights.  You do need to use the thick 80% denier tights because the stuffing will show through the finer variety.   It took me twenty minutes to make and it can be easily made by a child with supervision. 


1. Cut a section off a leg off the tights and lay on the table.  

2. Put an elastic band around the centre of the four pipe cleaners and then pass through the piece  of tights.


3. Take a small elastic band or hair elastic and wrap it round one end tightly leaving about 1 inch of the fabric free. 


4. Take a big handful of stuffing and push into the centre of the tights.,


5. Secure the loose end with another elastic band or hair elastic.


6. Trim off any excess fabric.


7. Glue on the eyes,  Nose and mouth. Add hair if desired or stick a bit of fluffy stuffing on top. 

8. That’s it! 

Make a cloud in a jar

What IS a cloud?  Where do they come from?  What do they feel like?  Can you sit on one? Can you catch one ?  

Children ask lots of difficult questions!  

Often they require more than just a verbal answer and that’s when Lizzie Witch comes to the rescue!  The Lizzie Witch Science Programmes explain the most complicated of scientific concepts with easy-to-understand and fun presentations.  They motivate children to ask even more questions, to investigate the world around them and, I hope, to develop a love of science! 

In this programme Lizzie explores the subject of ‘clouds’

Colour volcanoes. Fun Science Experiment for Home and School.

A fun and easy investigation for children from 4 years upwards. 

At Jumble Fun we don’t spoon feed !  We want youngsters to ask questions, to think creatively, to try out their own experiments and not just copy ours! 

Children need to be encouraged to predict the possible results before watching or doing an investigation and to draw conclusions from the results. 

This experiment is a fun way colour mixing as well introducing acid reactions.
