String up your straw. Sometimes adding a little piece of tape on the end of the string helps thread the straw easier.
Hold an inflated balloon against the straw (do not tie off balloon, just hold it)
Baking soda and vinegar is nothing new, but Kaylee came up to me the other day and said, “Can I do an experiment by myself?” The first thing I thought of was mixing some colors with vinegar and baking soda. It’s easy, quick and simple for little ones to do.
She added a drop of food coloring into each cup and a small scoop of baking soda.
Then she added a tablespoon of vinegar and watched the reaction.
“This is SO cool!” She loved it and kept adding small amounts of vinegar and baking soda to keep the reaction going over and over and over.
Kaylee had so much fun with the previous “experiment” that we kept going. With just water and food coloring.
Wondering what she is wearing around her neck? She was pretending to be a puppy and made herself a collar with an old navy tag and a piece of ribbon
In each cup she added two drops of food coloring in different colors. Then some water to see what new color was created.
Again, she was totally mesmerized! I just love kids!! It’s so fun to see her reactions and the joy she finds in the every day things we take for granted.
This would be a fun summer activity for kids to do as well! You can find all of the fun science experiments I included in the gift, as well as the pdf file for the recipe cards, on my Super Science Kit post.
