Toddler Fun: Baking Soda + Vinegar

 I don't know about you but science wasn't always my favorite subject. Until we did something cool like dissect a cat or make exploding volcanoes, and then I loved it! 

I was supposed to be cleaning out the cabinets this morning, when I stumbled upon the Vinegar and Baking Soda. I instantly remembered the erupting Volcano science experiment I did in 5th grade! We instantly stopped cleaning and started playing! ;)
I'm sure you have everything you need to turn your kitchen into a science lab!
You just need some vinegar, baking soda and food coloring! 
I set it all up on a tray for Wild Man, like this. 
 He was so gentle at first, spooning the dyed food color on the tray of baking soda ....
 and he was SO amazed by the fizzing results!!
 Then he started touching it ...
 and then spooned all the baking soda into the bowl of vinegar ...
 and that is when the REAL amazement kicked in.
He LOVED it! 
 Then he just started dumping the vinegar .... 
and things got crazy! ;)
and a little messy! 
until we ran out of supplies.
and then there were tears.

We will definitely be doing this again! 
Wild Man is still talking about his exploding volcano!

  1. Now that looks like a perfect activity for a cold day!

    I may have to give it try... I know that the older girls will love it but I'm trying to figure out how the toddler will do.

    1. My son is 2.5 and he was amazed! My 13 month old was asleep when we did this but I definitely think he is too young.
