Are gingerbread men cookies a staple in your house around Christmas time? Personally, I love a soft gingerbread cookie anytime of the year. This time we set up a dissolving gingerbread men Christmas science activity to enjoy our tasty treat while we learn. Dissolving food is a super simple classic science activity that’s must try for young kids. Celebrate your holiday with Christmas Science and STEM activities!
DISSOLVING GINGERBREAD MEN CHRISTMAS SCIENCE!
Science is so important for young kids! Exposing kids to simple science activities encourages curiosity. Kids have a lot of questions and setting up simple science experiments such as this dissolving gingerbread men experiment is a cool way to encourage science skills like observing, testing, and questioning.
STEM is a also a great term to know. What is STEM and is it valuable? STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math and plays an important role in our society.
This year I have been contributing simple science experiments and activities for Pre-K Pages. You will find all the how to’s and set up information for this dissolving gingerbread men experiment by clicking here. We had a great time tasting and exploring gingerbread on a cold winter’s day.
