My girls love our “school” time we have. I am a hopeful future homeschooling mom, and I try to come up with really interactive and creative things to keep their attention. My girls are still so young (3 1/2 and almost 2), but I am so happy they have such a love of learning! Makes my job of trying to figure out our preschool time that much easier.
Last week we did a little science experiment that kept them busy for over an hour! I was so surprised. Most of the materials you need are in your pantry already, which is always ideal. Here is what you’ll need:
- Baking Soda
- Food coloring
- Some kind of dropper
- Baking sheet
- Bowls or small cups (we used small tupperware bowls)
- Get your baking soda and lay a thin layer covering the entire baking sheet.
- Pour small portions of vinegar into each cup and add food coloring to each as desired.
- Get your dropper and start dropping!
- Explain to your little ones how different chemicals can cause a reaction. The reaction in this case is foaming bubbles!
My girls were so mesmerized by all the bubbles that would form by just a couple of drops!
Please let us know if you decide to do this with your little ones, and if you take photos via Instagram, make sure to hashtag it #WestValleyMoms!
