Tips for Science Easter Activities for a Kindergarten Class
Easter science experiments are fun, which makes them ideal for using as experiments to foster a love of science in kindergarten kids.
Kindergarten kids are full of wonder and they love discovering new things about the world and how it works.
Kids can learn a lot with Easter themes, including plants, candy, chocolate, eggs, and bunnies.
During the Easter season, kinder kids can learn about all sorts of fun science themes, like weather, seeds and plants, the scientific method, life cycles, animal science, and basic chemistry.
Most kindergarten kids have a hard time focusing, so depending on your class size, you may want to conduct some of these experiments as class demonstrations and then discuss the results.
We have a STEM worksheet that works well for recording any science or STEM project information.

Why Try Science Easter Activities for Kindergarten?
At STEAMsational, it is our mission to create a love of science and STEM in kids, starting from toddlers and running all the way through middle school!
We have active, hard-to-please kids just like everyone else, and kids are constantly distracted by other activities like videos games, movies, and other school activities.
Sometimes, science gets pushed to the back of the line!
But research shows that kids who engage with hands-on science and STEM activities learn better, retain knowledge longer, and are more like to try a STEM degree path in college.
So, we have to make the subject so much more fun for them!
That’s why in kindergarten, we do seasonal themed science activities, like these Easter science activities for kindergarten!
