Hey mama - do you have some:
- Food coloring
- Baking soda
- Medicine dropper
- Little bowls, ramekins, or a muffin tin
- Cookie sheet or tray?
Your littles are well on their way to making some “magic fairy dust.”
This can keep Sweetpea occupied for a good 30-60 minutes, or long enough to make dinner and
snort at talking dog videos on Facebook change a diaper or two.
Here’s what you do:
Put vinegar into the bowls/ramekins/muffin tin
Color vinegar with the food coloring (a drop will do ya)
Dump baking soda onto your cookie sheet or tray, making a layer about ½” to 1 inch thick
Talk it waaaayy up to your little, being sure to drop the words “magic fairy dust” (or “fizzy unicorn potion” or “dinosaur rainbow pee”--whatever your kid won’t be able to resist)
Give your birdie a medicine dropper and let her go to town
Take a pic so you can get your mama cred on Instagram
- a gentle intro to science
- teaches cause + effect
- builds fine motor skills
- sensory way of learning colors
You rock, mama.
