What you need: White vinegar, baking soda, liquid dropper, food coloring, small dishes, and a large baking dish (or 2)
1. Put baking soda into a baking type dish and spread it out.
2. Pour a small amount of white vinegar into the small dishes.
3. Let your children put a drop or 2 of food coloring into the vinegar and gently shake it around to mix well.
4. Using the liquid dropper fill it with the vinegar solution and drop it into the baking soda and see what happens!
5. Then just let them play with it.....Spreading around the baking soda after it is all colored is really fun!!
Waterbeads are an excellent tool for sensory play as well as fine motor skills. We added some water beads to a pan and “swished” them around.
Waterbeads are a good way to introduce science into the curriculum. Children can observe the growth and change in water level as they grow. Our waterbeads started out clear. We added water colors to the water turning them blue and green.
For fine motor skills have children spoon the waterbeads into a jar.
