Plastic Easter eggs
Prepare for lesson by creating Jell-O eggs.
Follow instructions on Jell-O package.
While that is cooking, place the bottoms of the plastic Easter eggs in the open egg carton.

Add a raisin to each egg and chill them overnight.
The next day, pop the eyes out, and let the child use their senses.

School Age Science!
2 Gallon-sized zip-lock bags
A bowl with ice and water
Fill one zip-loc bag with shortening.
Place the empty zip-loc bag inside of the shortening zip-loc bag.
Tape the zipper parts of the bags together, so all of the shortening is trapped between the two bags and the children can cleanly put their hand in the inner bag.
Put the bags inside of the ice and water bowl.
Notice the children's reactions when they put their hands inside the bag that is in the cold water.
