Did you know that you can build an exploding chain reaction by weaving popsicle or craft sticks together? It’s kind of like knocking down a chain of dominoes, only more exciting! This fun activity is perfect for the “tween” crowd (kids ages 9-12) and older. Once you master the chain, it’s fun to add in extras such as knocking down a stack of plastic cups at the end of the chain. Check out the full post for instructions as well as a video of this awesome chain in action!
