Flower Food Colouring Experiment
Objectives: observe and record observations, make predictions, reaching conclusions, summarise findings

Description :

Why did the petals change their colour?

Plants drink water from the ground up through their roots. The water travels up the stem and into the petals of the flower. Although the flowers don’t have roots anymore, they were still able to pull water up from the cup into the stem and up through the flower to the petals.

It is through capillary action that plants are able to defy gravity and pull water up and into their leaves and into the petals of the flower.

Crushing Can Science Experiment

This experiment is an impressive way to demonstrate the effect of air pressure under rapidly changing temperatures.

The can which is placed upside down collapses Because the steam cools and turns into water, which takes up much less space than steam. Since the can is submerged in water, no air can rush into fill in the space. The air outside the can exerts pressure on the can and it collapses.

The can which is place right side up does not collapse because air can easily enter tp take the place of steam. The pressure from inside is equal to the air pressure outside the can and nothing happens.
- Get 2 soda cans and put a small amount of water in each. Just enough to cover the bottom.
- Put the bottles on the frying pan and heat over high heat, until the water boils.
- While the water boils, get two big bowls of ice water ready. Use plenty of ice.
- Once the water is boiled, turn one of the cans upside down and place it into the ice water.
- With the other can, put in the ice water right side up.


Around 2 Aluminium soda cans

Paper Roll Bunnies
Objectives: Promoting creativity and use of scissors.

Resources Needed:

  • Coloured cardboard paper or painted toilet paper roll
  • Polka dot scrapbook paper (dotted or design it yourself
  • Cotton ball
  • Google eyes
  • Raffia Grass 
  • Black pen
  • Tape
  • Scissors  
  • Crafts tape or double-sided tape​


Step 1:

Cut out 4 pieces from Solid coloured paper
1 x rectangle 6 inches x 4.5 inches tall
1 x circles about 2 inches across (or trace around a small drinking cup)
2 x half circles paws about 1 inch across 

Step 2:

Cut out 3 shapes from the polka dotted scrap book paper
2 ear shapes about 3 inches tall
1 nose about 1 inch across 

Step 3:

Figure out where the nose is going to go (middle of the bigger circle cut), then draw a small mouth using a black pen. 
Then, add 3 lines along the flat edge paw pieces
Make sure you let the ink to dry before touching it. It might smudge easily. 

Step 4:

Cut the raffia pieces:
6 strips around 4 inches long each.
Line up the raffia whiskers, cut a small piece of tape and wrap it around the middle of the whiskers to hold them together.

Step 5:

By using tape attach the raffia to the back of the polka dot nose and then to the middle of the larger circle.  Then attach the googly eyes

Step 6:

Attach the ears and the paws with tape to the back of the bunny’s face using tape. 

Step 7:

Roll the paper rectangle into a tube shape. You want it to be roughly the same size as a toilet paper roll. Make sure you add tape to the both the inside edge of the paper roll and the outside edge of the paper roll, so it sticks together well.

Step 8:

Add a long strip of crafter’s tape straight down the back of the middle of the face, then press it onto the bottom of the paper roll.
Then add about a 1/2″ strip of crafter’s tape at the top, middle of the paper roll and press on the white pom- pom.

Rainbow in a Jar

Learning Objective:

To learn more about density. This experiment will help children understand that the more sugar added to each glass of water, the greater the density of the water. Children will also observe and understand that the denser the substance the more likely it will sink.


Step 1: Set out 4 glasses and pour 1/2 a cup of warm water into each glass and add 2 drops of food colouring to each of the 4 jars. Then you’re going to add 2 tablespoons of sugar in the red jar, 4 tablespoons of sugar in the yellow jar, 6 tablespoons of sugar in the green jar and 8 tablespoons of sugar in the blue jar. Using a spoon, you’re then going to stir the sugar until it dissolves. Lastly, you are going to add the glasses of water into a jar. You’re going to start by slowly pouring the blue water into the jar. Then gently pour the green water on top of the blue layer, the yellow layer on the blue and lastly the red layer. It is important that you add the layers slowly and carefully otherwise they’ll mix together which will result in a mixed rainbow.

Salt Water Egg Experiment
Objectives: ​observation, making predictions, the concept of contrasting 

This science
experiment presents students with a question. A raw egg sinks in water, but can we increase water's density to make it float?

Prior to watching the presentation about the craft, one is encouraged to follow the short clip titled, Salt Water Egg Experiment.

Today’s activities were prepared by the staff at the Klabb 3-16 Attard Centre.
