On Saturday, you can participate in one of two online art activities with your kids – that also have a science-component: Making candles or a snow globe.

At 9:00AM, Boston Children’s Museum will go live with a video: “Celebrate Holidays Traditions with Homemade Candles

“At this festive time of year, so many different holiday traditions involve light. To join in this celebration of light, we are making homemade candles using crayons! It’s not as hard as it might sound, and you likely have the materials in your home already. Join Alissa as she shows you how it’s done.”

At 10:00AM, Wave Hill offers: “Family Art Project: Weathering a Storm

“Flurries, snowfalls, blizzards and ice storms—how do you weather such weather? Storms are a natural process, but can be frightening and have a big impact on our lives. Learn the art and science of forecasting a storm while creating your own weather snow globes, and swirl up scenes of what it would take to weather a storm. Give those old sauce jars a new life with found objects, cut-up papers and old photographs.”

You can register on their site.
