Spider-Man Eggs

Link to video instructions

A fun activity which can be adapted to suit all ages.

We always recommend adult supervision.

Uses shaving foam, food colours, hard boiled eggs. We definitely advise wearing disposable gloves unless you don’t mind your fingers looking like the eggs themselves!

We use hard boiled cracked eggs.  The colour can’t penetrate the shell but stains the egg white because it, like your fingers, is a protein! Thus the spidery pattern.

The unde-fives will love playing with the shaving foam.

Older children will take up the challenge to try out different ways to colour the eggs.  Onion skins are good. (Boil them in a little water before adding the cracked eggs.) Frozen fruits of the forest and  fresh berries give varying degrees of pink and purple. (Simply leave the cracked hard boiled eggs in the fruit mixture overnight)

Everyone will find the video fun!

Please note that the colouring does fade so if you want them for Easter morning don’t make until the day before and then peel on Easter Day.

Halloween!  Make a super cool Lizzie Witch Lamp!!

Alfie shares the secret of his fir-cone weather station  and Georgie shows you how to make this super cool Lizzie Witch Lamp.

The Lizzie Witch Lamp

This is SO much fun to make. Quick, cheap and easy.

Don’t blow up the balloon too much if you are making it for the table but a large balloon is great for outside.

Why is science important?

Why?


Because young children are naturally curious and science investigations stimulate this natural curiosity.

Because science answers all those tricky questions about the world around them.

Because it encourages children to problem solve. To be creative thinkers. To develop a love of learning.

Because it motivates children to be active not passive.

Because by engaging in science investigations children learn to challenge what they see and hear rather just accepting.

Because they learn that making mistakes is the way to learn.

Because children learn best through doing. Through play.

Because it’s FUN!

You don’t need to be a teacher or have a science degree to engage in science investigations. ‘ Jumble Fun’ has made Science easy and fun.

Resources have been kept to a minimum and can usually be found in your kitchen or bathroom. We suggest watching a programme yourself prior to viewing with your child then you can easily gather the resources together in a bag

The short programmes not only show fun science investigations but suggest ways to adapt the investigation plus extension activities plus it’s all free.
