It’s spring, Easter is almost here, and that means one thing…
Personally, I can’t stand the things. I’ve never liked them. My kids do not share my opinion though.
Whether or not you think peeps are good eating, they can be used for a lot of fun science! Here’s a few fun peep science experiments for you.
- Nuke a peep! Throw a peep in the microwave – 30 – 60 seconds will do. Make sure you watch while they’re heating, because that’s where all the fun is!
- Mix some peeps! Pour some water (or any other clear liquid you like) into a bowl, add 2 different colored peeps, and watch what happens. This is a great lesson in color mixing, so keep on repeating with different peep color combinations.
- Fry some peeps! If it’s a sunny day, go outside with a peep and a magnifying glass. Remember burning ants with a magnifying glass as a kid? This is the more humane version.
Once you’re done with those, be sure to check out these fun peep links:
