With this beginner project, your young one will need a few crafty materials to create a package that will protect a single potato chip or cracker from breaking during a fall. The catch? They need to keep their package under a certain size—and they need to design a way to put the chip or cracker into their design . . . and take it out.

This spherification project is a kid-friendly take on a molecular gastronomy technique. Your young one will use gelatin and any type of edible liquid (such as fruit juice or soy sauce) to make small, cool-looking spheres. Once they're made, enjoy them on anything from yogurt to ice cream to rice. The options are endless.
This experiment will be live on atkkids.com on December 20th!
