- Bubbly Fun Science
One of the things I love about science, is well…. everything. I love that science is life. I love that science is everywhere, and especially in the kitchen. I have always enjoyed being in the kitchen and I love that we can integrate several things from both worlds today. This is such a fun way to get those creative minds to wonder about things. That’s really how science starts when you think about it. You get someone to wonder, then you ask questions until they want to solve them. So today we play with a few of my favorite things. Color, vinegar and baking soda.
I got this idea from Buggy & Buddy. I think you will enjoy it also.
First she read A Color of His Own by Leo Lionni, which is one of our top 100 favorite books. Your local library should ABSOLUTELY have this book on hand. It is a favorite across the land.
Here’s what you will need:
- Tray (I used a set of foil trays like these for my class.)
- Baking soda
- White vinegar
- Containers to hold the colored vinegar (I used ice cube trays.)
- Pipettes (Super inexpensive, and we use them often- like with our straw rockets and with painting activities)
- Liquid watercolors or food coloring
