Missed getting a kit at the library? Here are the materials and instructions--everyone is welcome to follow along with Ms. Emily's video!

Materials:

Baking Soda
Vinegar
Food Coloring
Pipettes
Plastic Cups
Watercolor Paper
Baking Sheet
Tin Foil

Directions:

  • With this project, you can use baking soda and vinegar reactions to make some fizzy art!
  • Line a baking sheet with tin foil to help contain the mess.
  • Cut some shapes out of the watercolor paper and lay them on the foil.
  • Make vinegar and food coloring mixtures by pouring some vinegar in cups and adding drops of food coloring to each one. Use enough food coloring so that your mixtures aren’t too light in color.
  • Sprinkle some baking soda on top of your watercolor paper shapes so that they are fully covered.
  • Use your pipettes to squeeze the colored vinegar mixtures across your baking soda covered shapes. Add enough colored vinegar until each shape is covered with color and is fizzing. Continue until the fizzing slows down.
  • When the fizzing stops, tip the excess color off of the shapes and set them aside to dry.
