Virtual Activities Supply Lists

REGISTER HERE for all 2021 festival activities. Zoom links will be sent via email on the festival weekend.

This year, we're offering live-streamed, interactive activities as well as a Lab in a Bag (LAB) kit that contains all of the supplies that you and your family needs to do the activities!  LAB kits are $5 and can be pre-purchased in our online store here and picked up at a regional location around the North Georgia area.  

If you and your family opt to obtain your own supplies, then don't worry, you can still engage with the activities!  Here are the supplies below you'll need in order to do our 2021 festival activities.  Please note that we're offering a wide-variety of activities, and there are several options that don't require any supplies.  If you want to do our activities that require supplies, you can get a LAB kit or purchase your own supplies from the list below:


Lemon Juice Personality Test:

  • 1 cotton swab (Q-Tip)
  • One 4-inch piece of thread
  • A marker
  • A few drops of lemon juice

  • 100 toothpicks


Fireworks in a Jar:

  • A jar or small, clear container with at least one cup of water
  • 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • A few drops of food coloring (different colors works best)


Paper Circuits:

  • One sheet of printer paper
  • At least 50cm of copper tape (more tape makes for longer circuits!)

  • These amounts will fill a standard or small glass container.  If you want to make a bigger density tower, then just use more of each liquid item noted above!  If you'd like to add more layers to your tower, then you can add water, honey, maple syrup, and whole milk too! 


Isolating DNA from Strawberries:

  • Cup or glass (a skinnier container works best)
  • 10mL rubbing alcohol
