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.

Valentines day sensory bin for all ages!

Sensory bins are something you can really make for any age and to fit into any budget. Mine was made for my own kids (ages 6&7) and made from items bought at my local dollar store. A sensory bin is a bin that engages some if not all of the 5 senses. Mine did not include scent or taste but was followed up by Valentines day candy as a treat. Now that my kids are no longer toddlers but still love these bins I try to include things I can use later on for different crafts or decorating. So for this bin I added heart shaped buckets, shredded paper, stickers, necklaces, Valentines day clothes pins, and a heart shaped bell door hanger. Recently I have noticed my kids enjoy adding other toys to play time and I love that. Seeing what they come up with and hearing the stories change as they grow is pretty neat to see. Anyway I hope this inspires you to try a sensory bin out with your baby/toddler/or child, and have a good rest of your morning, evening or night! Bye!
