November 25, 2019 2 min read

For the past few years, we have had a Cyber Monday sale, but this year we will not. Instead, we are encouraging you to opt for science fun with your family.

Our goal here at Elemental Science is to help you share science with your kiddos.

So rather than creating scarcity pricing and exclusive bundles for a short weekend, we have decided to provide you with the best pricing we can year-round. We are also offering our Christmas Science book and kit for more than just one week, so you won't miss out on the holiday science fun! 

With all that in mind, this Black Friday through Cyber Monday, we are offering these 4 FREE science activities you can do as a family - let's dig in!

4 Interesting ways you can Opt-4-Science-Fun from Black Friday through Cyber Monday

Skip the shopping and enjoy some science fun instead with these Opt-4-Science-Fun ideas from Elemental Science.

1. Read and make ornaments.

Read a Christmas story or poem together. Here a few of our favorites:

Once the ornaments are finished, use them to decorate your tree!

2. Clean up a local park.

Learn about recycling

Then find a local park to go to and pick up trash. Sort the trash as you collect it and recycle all that you can. You can join others in this project through:

3. Have a holiday science day.

Take an hour or a whole day to do one (or more) holiday science experiments together. Here are a few of our favorites:

You can set aside one day to do several experiments or do a few each day throughout the weekend! 

4. Learn about nature in winter.

If the weather is nice, head outside to observe nature. If not, spend 15 minutes at the window observing nature together. You can learn more about how to do this here:

As you observe, you can look for birds or any other wildlife. Then, you can do the same thing the next day around the same time to see if certain birds or animals come back each day over the weekend.

Wrapping it Up

Whatever you choose to do this coming weekend, we hope that you will build relationships in your family as enjoy a bit of science! If you do opt for a bit of science fun, share what you did with us with hashtag #opt4sciencefun!
