Science Project - Popsicle Stick Chain Reaction!


If you have grandchildren who enjoy "hands on" activities, then this activity is one which will capture their attention! It is the perfect type of activity to add a special "point" because you will have their attention and the point will "stick"!

You will need large craft sticks for this fun experiment - which I found on-line. This project uses craft sticks - LOTS of craft sticks. My grandsons LOVE science projects, so I'm pretty sure they will have fun helping me learn how to do this!

Basically it works by setting the sticks on the table in a certain pattern - when they are "released" we will see first hand what a chain reaction looks like. We will talk about how sadness "weaves" into our lives and causes a chain reaction of anger and bitterness which will "hold" us down, but when we turn to God, He causes this sadness to "release" and the result will be noticeable!

After our project I'll have the boys each take a craft stick and write, "Talk to God" on one side and add a magnet strip to the other so they may take it home and remember to release their sadness to God like Hannah did!

I thought you might like to try this project with your grandchildren - just follow the link above and you'll see how to make this project work! Enjoy!
