Science Experiment Fun!


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
  • Vinegar
  • 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!


  1. My girls loved doing this too! We used a muffin tin to hold the colored vinegar and baby spoons, since we didn’t have any droppers, but it worked just great. It was a fun rainy day activity!
