Deck the Halls…with Science!

Last year the Houston Museum of Natural Sciences’ “Beyond Bones” blog offered some chemistry-based ways to decorate handmade holiday ornaments. And since that time of year has come around again, here are some links to check out:

Color paper butterflies using chromatography.

Add marbled colors to a dinosaur (or other) shape with watercolors and shaving cream.

Grow crystals on pipe cleaners with borax. (Even when I was a kid, I never knew anyone to use pipe cleaners to actually clean pipes.)
