I am assuming that we all know that mixing baking soda and vinegar creates some kind of foaming, fizzing action.
But toddlers do not know that. So after seeing the idea of doing this with kids somewhere on pinterest, I thought why not just try it with our little one. I am old to the idea but it may fascinate her. It sure did. I captured a photo of her expression the first time we made it but I believe I deleted it. We have done this twice now.
Food Coloring (if desired, but adding it makes it more interesting for little eyes)
Get a bowl and some form of wide mouth jar or container. I used a Ball canning jar.
Place it in another wider and bigger bowl to contain the solution.
Measure about a 1/3 cup or a little more vinegar in a separate cup. Add food coloring of choice.
Add about a tablespoon of baking soda to the jar.
Pour the vinegar over the baking soda and and let the kids what what happens.
Then we decided to get creative and do a few different colors all at once.
My daughter and I poured into a different jar at the same time. The second photo below shows when the fizzing stops and all the bubbles just seem to melt away:(
Be sure and add enough baking soda and vinegar so it can rise all the way to the top.
