Toddler Fun: Baking Soda, Vinegar and Colors

So this was a blast for both myself and Kam. I got the idea from Pinterest. Basically, you cover the bottom of a baking pan with baking soda and add food coloring to a few tablespoons of vinegar. Cheap and I already had everything on hand.

I love this activity because I could explain that adding vinegar to baking soda makes it fizz. He IS two though so all he really responded to was “BUBBLES BUBBLES BUBBLES!!!”

I also found this to be a great way to talk about colors. I let my son pick the color he wanted next and I would draw the color up for him to squirt in the pan and we would talk about it. At one point he asked for purple so I explained that red and blue make purple, drew it up and let him drop it in. We also talked about how red and yellow make orange. If we had a dropper with a bulb on it he probably could have done this himself.

All in all, a great learning activity I recommend. Here are some photos!
