Christmas Paper towel experiment for kids
This activity is quite magical for little ones.
So magical that my LO’s love it and think it is magic each and every time I bring forth this simple activity!
Here are the steps I took to put this simple drawing pictures with colors paper towel experiment together:
Draw something fun on the inner sheet of the two sheets of paper towels.
We themed ours for Christmas so I drew a simple Christmas tree and a set of cookie cutter shapes.
Fold the blank sheet over the drawn pictured sheet.
Then, bring forth a simple tray filled with water.
Voila! You are ready to add your paper towel in the water.
Paper towel science projects can be as easy as 1-2-3.
The steps in this simple paper towel pictures activity are really just that – as easy as 1-2-3.
Once the paper towel touches the water, the image you drew on the second sheet magically appears on the blank sheet on top of it!
This is magic to little ones eyes and is so much fun!
You can even incorporate a bit of early learning to this simple paper towel experiment for kids by talking about the different colors that pop out once immersed in water.
Try adding a bit of early years math by counting each of the ornaments that pop up.
This is a wonderful way to practice counting, colors and more!
