Winter is a wonderland, especially for our little explorers keen on understanding the science behind the snow. From frosty formations to icy inquiries, let’s explore some captivating experiments perfect for preschoolers:

1. Frost Formation:

On a cold night, place a metal can with a few ice cubes outside. In the morning, observe the frost on its surface. Discuss the concept of condensation and how frost forms.

2. Icy Sun Catchers:

Fill a shallow tray with water, add natural items (like leaves or pinecones), and freeze. Once frozen, hang it outside and watch as the sun shines through, discussing how ice can both reflect and refract light.

3. Snow Maze:

Create a maze in the snow using a bottle filled with warm colored water. As your child draws with the warm water, the snow will melt, leaving behind a vibrant path. This activity bridges art with the concept of melting.

4. Floating Ice Challenge:

Fill a bowl with oil, then add water and a few ice cubes. Watch as ice floats between the oil and water. This activity introduces density in a hands-on manner.

5. Ice Excavations:

Freeze small toys in a block of ice. Provide your child with warm water and salt to excavate the toys. As they ‘dig’, they’ll learn about the melting properties of ice.


The winter season, with its snowy landscapes and icy wonders, is the perfect backdrop for experiential learning. Each snowflake and ice crystal holds a lesson waiting to be unraveled. So, let’s cherish these cold moments, turning them into warm memories of discovery!
