This fun science project is simple so kids can enjoy the wonder of exploring and trying new things. In this fun Easter STEAM activity you will combine science, engineering, and art for a truly educational and FUN learning activity!  First, make your saturated solution by mixing water with as much borax as will dissolve – we heat the water so it can absorb as much borax as possible.  As the solution cools, the borax particles will settle on the pipe cleaners and form pretty crystals.

Easter Activity for Preschoolers

The first step is to form an egg shape out of your pipe cleaners. Make as many as you like, just remembe they each need a jar to soak in to create crystals. If you put two-to-a-jar they crystals will end up joining the two eggs together.

Now cut some pipe cleaners in half and use them to create the accents to decorate your egg. You may make them wavy, zig zag, straight, or wiggly. Just loop the small pipe cleaner around the side of the egg to hold in place.

Now boil 3 cups of water in the microwave or in a saucepan.  Carefully mix in 9 Tablespoons of Borax (found in the laundry detergent aisle)  and stir until dissolved.  Pour the HOT mixture into a jar that is large enough to fit the egg pipe cleaner. Carefully lower the pipe cleaner rainbow into the solution so it is hanging in the solution, but is not touching sides or bottom using a stirng attached to the top of the egg. The borax and water solution must cover the entire egg craft. Now wrap end around a craft stick and set on top of the jar to hold in place.
