Holiday Chemistry

The American Chemical Society has collected lots of experiments you can use to help your holidays merrier. Make a string of brightly colored bulbs using colored ink and water. If you are tired of waiting for snow, make your own snowflakes using borax. There are instructions for the construction of a variegated disaccharide “J” tube you’ll just have to try. Try to solve the mystery of the Christmas cookies that Mrs. Claus makes. You can learn about crystal development when you make crystal frost window paint. There are enough activities to keep you learning chemistry all through December.
