Science: ˈsīəns/ (noun) – the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment. Welcome CrafterNerds! On this edition of Replicate This Crafternoon, I am going to showcase some awesome Science related crafts for kids! Some of these crafts can be purchased, while others are projects you can do with your kids at home with a few simple ingredients!
How about these Chemistry Crayon Labels by QueInteresante on Etsy? There are 24 labels you can stick on your kids’ crayons so that they can memorize chemical names while they are coloring! Each color is representative of the element on the label to create an association relationship for the child. Genius! Labels are also available for colored pencils.
Check out this amazing Crocheted “Breaking Beakers” set by Lauren Espy of amenagerieofstitches. While she does not plan on selling this big set, she is planning on releasing smaller sets which will be available soon. Check out her Etsy shop here, and give her a follow on Instagram.
These are Infectiously Cute Plush Microbes! Whether you have nerdlings who love science, or you wanna get one for a friend as a gag gift, you can choose from a variety of cells, diseases, and viruses. Check them out on Think Geek.
Whether you call it Gak or Flubber, with just a few household ingredients you and your nerdling(s) can create your own rubbery slime! Aylah and I have made this quite a few times and it’s always a hit. Check out this Homemade Flubber recipe from live craft eat.
There is something very soothing about these Jellyfish in a Bottle by PBS Parents. Full Instructions in the video.
You and your nerdlings can create your own Dinosaur Fossil experience by following the instructions by Love & Lollipops. You could even take it a step further by pouring Plaster of Paris into the impressions you have made so that you end up with 3-dimensional fossils that you could bury in a container with sand. Give your kiddos some brushes and voila they have their own fossil digging excursion!

Science is fascinating. Children love to figure out how things work. Science may get messy sometimes. Embrace it! Let your kids get messy and figure stuff out! You never know, your child could grow up and begin a lifetime career in science and make a world-changing discovery!
Stay Nerdy, my friends!
