10 Outdoor Winter Science Activities

Ahhh… Winter.

Winter and I have a love/hate relationship for sure, but doing these science activities with my family was definitely an awesome way to beat the winter blues.  I sometimes need motivation to get out and play in the snow since it’s much easier to just stay in. Where I live in the beautiful upper peninsula, average January temperatures are between 22F and -8F.   Sometimes warmer ( Record high of 42F in 1975 — I can’t even imagine. So warm!) but when you factor in windchill (yesterday it was -24F) it’s cold and even thought the snow is beautiful it’s hard to get out.

So for Science Saturday this month, I put together 10 science activities to help motivate you to get out and play in the snow more.
