14 Valentines Science Activities You and Your Kiddos Are Sure To Love

Come see the Sassafras Twins' list of super-fun Valentine's science activities at Elemental Science that you can try out as you celebrate this Valentine's Day

We are going to share our favorite Valentine's science activity with you first and then, we'll let a few of our internet-science-blogger friends share the rest!

1. Send a Valentine's note with Science.

Now, we will warn you - Uncle Cecil has activated the smoke alarms more than a few times with the typical version of this activity. You know the one with lemon juice or milk and a candle.

It's all too easy to see your secret note go up in flames, so we are going to share a different spin on this one. One that we learned from the Kitchen Pantry Scientist. This one uses acid and base action instead.

Here's what you will need:

  • Baking soda
  • Water
  • Q-tip
  • Small bowl
  • Paper
  • Cranberry juice
  • 9 by 12 pan

Mix a tablespoon and warm water in the small bowl. Dip the q-tip into the solution and use it to write a message on the paper. Let the paper dry.

Once your message dries, hand the paper to your friend. Have your friend fill the 9 by 12 pan with cranberry juice. Then, have your friend set the paper you gave them in the pan and wait for the message to be revealed!

And once you send a Valentine's note with science, check out these fourteen more Valentine's science activities you are sure to love!
