Freezing Mad Science in Oakland Township

Oakland Township Invites Children Ages 3-5 Years Old to Come Out and Experiment with Ice

Freezing Mad Science for 3-5 Years Old

With winter breathing its frigid air across the ponds and streams, Oakland Township Parks and Recreation has noticed them turning solid. They are not one to ignore nature’s cues so they will be holding a program for participants to play with ice! From the warmth of the nature center, participants will perform experiments with wacky hand-shaped ice cubes and salt to see if they are able to paint cubes of ice before they melt. Participants will even make ice fizz up like soda pop. Afterwards, everyone will be taking a trip into the woods (with snowshoes if nature is kind enough to snow) to explore Lost Lake for signs of natural ice. Participants will even put together Ice Candles to take home.
