Egg Carton Glider Target Throw – page 121

Many airplane kits that we have purchased through the years don’t last too long.  An inevitable crash takes them out of commission within a few minutes of assembly.  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.  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.  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.

Fizzing Sidewalk Paint – page 162 

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