I found this awesome idea and wanted to try it out with my little guy, he LOVED it!! He calls this his 'science experiment'. Great for a rainy day, it kept him occupied for over a 1/2 hour!
What you need:
- a pan of baking soda
- bowls with vinegar
- food coloring
- and something to squirt out the vinegar. I used one of those baby medicine syringes. (see picture further down).
We took the syringe and pulled up the back to suck up some vinegar, my son then squirted it into the baking soda. He loved the reaction it made! It foams up, and then down and turns into this soft feeling almost moon sand texture.
I love being able to spend time like this with him, and watch him learn and grow.
