DIY Crime Scene Investigator Activities

For adults to do with kids

CSI At Home!

Help your furiously curious child investigate crimes with this series of DIY activities.

Learn about fuming fingerprints, spatter patterns, ink chromatography, DNA extraction and more, using materials and ingredients from around your house.
Watch the videos to see how-to-do the activity and then download the activity sheet listing what you’ll need, along with step-by-step instructions.

All activities require supervision of an adult and take around 30 minutes to do.

Start by helping your child make their very own CSI toolkit.
Hunt around your house to collect all the items you need including safety gear to help your junior CSI investigator get to work, and find out whodunit!
