Winter Wonderland

  • EverWonder Children's Museum 31 Pecks Lane Newtown, CT, 06470 United States (map)

Do you want to build a snowman? On Sunday, December 18th, we will be celebrating and learning about our favorite frosty friends in our Winter Wonderland celebration. In our Science Demo, children will learn about energy fluxes related to snowmelt as they help snowmen melt through dropping vinegar on top of premade baking soda snowmen. Children will also work on their scientific process skills through our Snowman Observation. In our Snowman Observation, we will place one ice snowman outside and one ice snowman inside the museum. Children will observe which snowmen will melt the fastest. Each child will make a prediction about which will melt the fastest and record their observations. In our Winter Craft activity, children will work on their fine gross motor skills through building snowmen out of cotton pads, ribbon, buttons, dried beans, orange felt, twigs, and plastic ice crystals in plastic trays. Children will build their own snowmen from scratch over and over again through switching parts and accessories.
