Being creative provides children with new ways of thinking and problem-solving skills. It gives children the opportunity to try new things and encourages them to express themselves. This glow stick experiment is a very simple science experiment that allows you to be creative.
All you need for this experiment is:
- Glow sticks
- Clear glass
IMPORTANT! Please supervise children at all times during science experiments. Do NOT use toxic substances. Check the packaging of products carefully and provide protective equipment such as gloves and googles where necessary!
Simply snip off the end of a glow stick with the scissors and tap away at the glass to empty the contents onto the glass. Use a mixture of different colours and methods of emptying the glow stick to create different patterns.
