Hello lovely people!
Last week I showed you how to make your own indicator & how it changes colours.
At the end of that experiment Mr. 2 started to mix the base (baking soda) with the lemon & voila we had a completely new experiment!
So i thought I'd share that experiment with you and show you different variations of it!
What you need:
- red cabbage juice (see previous blog post on how to make it)
- baking soda in small dish or coconut bowl
- lemon or vinegar
- Add baking soda to the three plastic cups with the red cabbage already in them.
- then add the lemon or vinegar!
Watch them bubble away!!
Baking soda in chalk
- mix baking 2 teaspoons of baking soda with 1 crushed chalk (do this individually with different chalk colours). If the colour is to dull add another chalk.
- place vinegar or lemon into a small dish
- set this up in a tray and place a pippette with it.
note: I didn't add enough baking soda in my trial so make sure to add enough to create more fizz!!
Baking soda & Citrus fruits!
- cut citrus fruits in half
- place them in a tray with baking soda in a small bowl
- add some small measuring spoons
- show your minis how to poke and squeeze the fruits to get the juices out
- get them to mix the baking soda inside the fruits and poke and squeeze them to create the fizz!
The simple version! Baking soda + lemon or vinegar! This one is always a hit!
- Place either the baking soda in a plastic cup or the vinegar!
- If you place the baking soda in the cup first use a pipette to put vinegar or lemon on top of it! This is great for your child to work on their pincer grip!
- If you decided to put the vinegar in the cup when you prepare the experiment place a small measuring spoon for your mini to put the baking soda into the vinegar!
note: you can substitute the vinegar with lemon & vise versa!
That's it for today!
Next week I will be putting up a recipe for natural paint that you can make at home! I was meant to upload it today but I just wanted to test a few more recipes to perfect the best one for you guys to try!!
