Baking Soda and Vinegar Never Get Old...

I remember being in 2nd grade and watching my teacher use baking soda and vinegar to show us how a volcano erupts. That was one magical moment.

My girl also got to have that magical moment, but it was shared with me!  Such a perk of being able to stay home with her.  One of the many reasons I truly wanted to.  

Mother Goose Time outdid themselves with the day on Reactions. Seriously, we could have done this all week long!  I used a giant box of baking soda (not the whole thing) that I purchased in the laundry aisle, along with vinegar, food coloring, and few glass bowls, and 3 pipettes or medicine droppers, all of which I had at home.



Sweet Pea worked really hard at learning how to squeeze the pipette while it was in the vinegar. There were many times she would squeeze when it was not in the bow; then I would show her how to do it again.

"Wow, momma!" was the phrase of the day :)  

She loved watching the fizzing happen in the large container, but when she realized she could pick up some of the soda and place it in the colored vinegar, that was a game changer.

Sweet Pea fell in love with the fizzing she could feel on her fingers and all the bubbles that took place when she placed the baking soda in the vinegar.  However, it didn't take long for the vinegar and baking soda to neutralize and not fizz anymore.


Naturally, I mixed some more blue.


If I could have put this pan in a picture frame I would. Those textures are just beautiful!  I guess I will just frame this picture until then.  :) 

And when we were done, we did what I am sure every child aches to do... mix it all together with your hands and see what happens!
