Egg Carton Glider Target Throw – page 121
Many airplane kits that we have purchased through the years don’t last too long. Â An inevitable crash takes them out of commission within a few minutes of assembly. Â Thankfully, this DIY kit uses things found around the house and is sturdier for play, so it doesn’t have to be banished to a high shelf to keep it intact. Â In fact, make a few gliders to use in this target throwing game.

Sticky-Note Pom-Pom Maze – page 37
This project transforms sticky notes into a maze that can be designed and constructed by a kid. Â The fun thing is that even though they designed the maze, it will still be a challenge to maneuver a pom-pom through it with a straw and some air power.
Lots of fun with the Sticky-Note Maze:

Fizzing Sidewalk Paint – page 162Â
This activity trumps ordinary sidewalk chalk with a little science magic by creating a chalk-based paint and then spritzing on a little fizz. Â it all starts with pH. Â When solutions that are pH base mix with an acid, action happens!
