You melt my heart activity

Needed~
baking soda
food coloring
glitter
vinegar
heart shaped tray or cups

In a bowl mix water with the food coloring you choose, then slowly add in baking soda till you have a mixture you can pick up and pack into a mold. Top with glitter and let it dry. I suggest you do not put it in the freezer, I did and the fizzing reaction took awhile to happen and was not as big as it would have been if not frozen. When me and my kids did this experiment we just talked about Valentines day and what they thought about it. I would have explained this reaction between the baking soda and vinegar but this is a experiment we do in all different ways and they are well aware of the reaction between the two.

Trash bin for bigger balls or large shoe rack works too Clothes hamper for pool toys & Mesh bag for sand toys Before we really even got some what organized we use to use crates but I found that with many kids going threw creates to find certain toys it quickly got messy so I really like the idea of having bins for certain toys. I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…
