Fizzy stuff


Baking Soda & Vinegar Volcano
What you'll need:

Baking Soda (make sure it's not baking powder)
Vinegar
A container to hold everything and avoid a big mess!

Paper towels or a cloth (just in case)

Instructions:

Place some of the baking soda into your container.
Pour in some of the vinegar
Watch as the reaction takes place!

What's happening?

The baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) is a base while the vinegar (acetic acid) is an acid. When they react together they form carbonic acid which is very unstable, it instantly breaks apart into water and carbon dioxide, which creates all the fizzing as it escapes the solution.

For extra effect you can make a realistic looking volcano. It takes some craft skills but it will make your vinegar and baking soda eruptions will look even more impressive!

Fizz Ice- In a cup mix baking soda with little bit of water. The scoop the mix into a ice cube tray. Once frozen run back of tray under hot water to release the ice cubes and put them on a deep plate or bowl. Last to make them fizz use a spoon or anything like that to pour vinegar over them and let them fizz! 
hint-(i wouldn't fill all of the ice cube tray cause then ur gonna be using a lot of vinegar)We also add glitter to ours just for color.

Fizz Egg- (same recipe as volcano again) This time with EGGS! i cracked the top of the eggs open then cleaned them out with warm water. After i filled them with some baking soda and little bit of food coloring (it will stain fingers not much but you can also try to use koolaid) after I add the vinegar and done! They bubble up a lot and after they where done bubbling i added more vinegar and it did it over again.

One way I keep my kids learning over the summer break!

We all know that summer can be one time our kids can lose what they learn during the school year. We get told this over and over every year and it is very true. So every summer we try to fit in as much learning as we can(while still having fun). This year we are trying spring/summer journals. As much as possible we  take walks and every time the kids see something they find interesting they either write about it and/or draw a picture to go with it. This way we are keeping up with new vocabulary and learning about many different things.
So yeah, this is the new thing we are adding this summer to help keep my kids learning! So far it has been a big hit, lets hope it stays that way. :)



Have a good rest of your morning, evening, or night! Bye guys!~

Spring dollar sensory bin/easy cheap sensory play

Spring is here finally! We are so ready for the warmer weather! To celebrate the start of spring I decided a nice sensory bin was a good idea. So off to the local dollar store I went to see what they would have. Dollar stores are a great place to find cheap ideas for play. 
They had a whole selection of fairies and gnomes and many accessories. This was the tray I put together for my kids but my kids are older and I know they wont eat any of this. If you have younger kids or toddlers  I suggest looking around to find more age appropriate items. I also look for items that will not just sit around or go to waste. These little figures will go in a play bin for not only my kids to enjoy threw the spring/summer but for my neighborhood kids to enjoy also. The only thing I wish I would have added to this tray was water. We covered the sense of touch here in many ways and water would have been a great add on. Anyway this was my kids bin but you can make many different bins from dollar stores …
