It is the holiday season. There are a lot science activities you can do with kids. Since most people in the US celebrate Christmas, and most families have Christmas trees set up during the holiday season, today let’s look at some cool ideas of science activities with Christmas tress.

Fun Christmas Tree Science Activities for Kids

Christmas Tree Science Activities for Kids and Family, great science project ideas for the holiday season
What is Christmas tree? Holiday season is a good time to learn about the trees people use as Christmas trees. Go out to look for pine trees and other evergreen trees. Take some samples from outside, do some investigation and research. Are they all the same, what are the differences in leaves, colors, smells? You can find a field guide and detective worksheet here.

Get some green and red gumdrops and build a gumdrop Christmas tree. It is a fun way to learn about structures. It may not be as easy as you thought.

You can explore magnets with kids from this magnetic Christmas tree. To make sure the paper clips not touch the decorations on the tree, it is a good exercise to strengthen the fine motor skills for the little hands.

Paint a Christmas tree with baking soda color, and compare how it is different from using regular paint or marker. I love that they started with yellow and blue and watched the color turn green when mixing the two colors together.

Create a Christmas tree with Christmas slime. All kids like to play slime.

Have you tried this magic Christmas tree? If not, definitely give it a try. The result is amazing.

We tried this Snapshot Christmas Tree. It is quite challenging to connect the electric circuit correctly so the family can play the game safely.

It is fun to create snowy Christmas tree, using a science experiment.

Time to take the Christmas tree down? Try this melting Christmas tree activity. It is a quite creative idea.

After all these activities with Christmas trees, it is nice to read some books about Christmas tree:
The Biggest Christmas Tree Ever
A Wish to Be a Christmas Tree
Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree
The Berenstain Bears Trim the Tree
Children Book Series: Christmas Tree
Monster Needs a Christmas Tree

    The Christmas slime is super cool! I can’t wait until my daughter gets into that kind of stuff. In the mean time, I may just make some for myself. I mean, I may just practice making it over and over again so I make it right when she does get into this stuff 😉

    I love the gum drop tree. That’s one my daughter would totally be into at her age, so maybe we’ll start there.
