No season is complete without the jingle of bells, we played with sound science too! One of the most popular ways to explore jingle bells is to use them with magnets. There are actually quite a few fun and simple ways to do that too.
A batch of homemade slime is another great way to play with jingle bells. We made glittering gold and silver slime and add jingle bells for a fun Christmas theme STEM activity.

We are looking forward to making a box top maze tomorrow for our jingle bells, so check back for that one! I will have to think about some more ideas to try. You can easily add jingle bells to a cardboard tube marble run as well, instead of the marbles.
