Thanks very much to Carolyn Clegg for this simple activity idea that keeps the kiddies amused and we even get to call educational!
Here is a fun and easy activity for kids with a focus on cause and effect. This is where your grade school science lessons come in handy!
Grab some vinegar, baking soda, food colouring and an ice cube tray.
Fill the ice cube tray with vinegar and add a drop or two of food colouring to a few of the compartments.
Then pour some baking soda into a bowl and give your little one a spoon. Stand back and watch them discover what happens when they add a spoonful of baking soda to the vinegar.
Be prepared to replenish the vinegar and baking soda over and over again. This activity is sure to become a fast favourite!
