Science at Home

The kiddos I watch love to do science experiments.  Especially the 6 year old.  I am always looking up stuff to try on Pinterest and the internet.  Last week I found a very simple one I decided to try.

All I needed was
  • baking soda
  • small cups
  • vinegar
  • food coloring
  • a pan
  • medicine droppers
We already had all these things so I was ready to go!

Just pour baking soda into any size/shape/material pan.  I used a round, metal, cake pan.  Then, get a few dixie cups, fill them with vinegar, and add food coloring.  Lastly, give each child a medicine dropper and let them experiment!

They were amazed at the reaction!

"Is it going to explode?"

They had lots of fun mixing the colors too! "Red and blue make purple". I would highly recommend this fun and easy science experiment for anyone and their kiddos :)
