My kids loved to play with baking soda and vinegar. I’d find a bottle that fit a cork, then let them play around with those two ingredients to see how far up they could make their cork rocket fly. You can dress up a cork with some red and blue ribbons, but keep it light so it will fly.
Here are some other creative ways to celebrate the day:
Exploding sidewalk paint ~ use glow-in-the-dark paint for night fun
Flying chalk rockets ~ a different approach to sidewalk art
Fizzy sidewalk paint ~ perfect for toddlers
Fizzy pop chalk ~ for fingers or brushes
Erupting Rainbow ~ another fun one for the youngest kids
And how can we not include the Diet coke and mentos geyser ~ definitely outside fun!
Have a fizzy, fun weekend and I'll return on Wednesday for a nature break and more outside exploration.
Fun ideas, Sue. I wish my neighbors would do this instead of fireworks!ReplyDelete
I do too. Last night our house rattled because of firecracker nonsense. We'd all be so much happier with exploding sidewalk paint!Delete
