Activity - "Painting" With Baking Soda and Vinegar

So, I got this idea from Pinterest - but there was only a picture.  Here is what we did:

Step 1

Gather supplies - Lots of baking soda, some vinegar, food colouring, small containers, a large cake pan (preferably clear), and an eyedropper.

Step 2

Put a reasonably thick layer of baking soda into the pan/dish.

Step 3

Put about a 1/4 cup of vinegar into numerous small containers.

Step 4

Colour the vinegar with your food colouring (make each container a different colour)

Step 5

Have fun!  Use the eyedropper to suck up the coloured vinegar and squirt it into the baking soda pan.  It will fizz up, and leave behind a coloured mark.  

Josie had fun with this, but her attention span only lasted for about 5 minutes.  Cleanup was quick and easy (yay dishwasher).  She liked sticking her fingers in the bubbles that occurred :-)  A fun little activity to do when you're looking for something a little different!
