25 Christmas Science Ideas

We used to hate science, so the thought of doing science at Christmas . . . bleh!

Nowadays, we love the subject. Can’t get enough of the stuff. All thanks to the Prez, Uncle Cecil, and one crazy summer filled with invisible zip-line travel!

We have made a list. We have checked it twice. And now we’re going to find out who’s . . . no wait . . . that one is about Santa.

We have made a list of 25 Christmas science activities we plan on trying this break. And today, we are sharing that list with you!!
