- Tray or Cookie Sheet
- Liquid Food Coloring
- Baking Soda
- Distilled White Vinegar
- Dropper ( I like to save mine from empty medicine bottles like Children’s Tylenol)
- Pour baking soda on your tray or cookie sheet and give it a quick shake to spread it out evenly.
- Using liquid food coloring, allow your child to add as many drops all over the baking soda.
- Next, pour 1 cup of vinegar into a cup. Use a dropper to add vinegar right over the food coloring droplets and watch the reaction between the baking soda and vinegar. It makes a fun fizzing rainbow.
Talk to your child about the simple science behind this fun Fizzing Rainbow Baking Soda Experiment. The simplest idea behind it is an acid-base reaction. Baking soda is a bicarbonate and vinegar is an acetic acid. When combined, they create a carbon dioxide gas—which produce colorful fizzing bubbles in this experiment!

My 3 and a half-year-old son LOVES cars! He loves all things that go including monster trucks, planes, buses, emergency vehicles and motorcycles. He likes to get his head down real close to the ground and watch the wheels move back and forth. He’s always asking what each feature in my car does. And he points out every car manufacturer while we’re driving. It’s amazing how much he knows about cars. So I decided to give him something fun to do while we’re in the car- this [Read more…]
Bubbles are one of my son’s favorite outdoor activities. Not only does he love to blow them but he also loves to run around and chase them. I don’t know what it is about bubbles that kids go crazy for but I don’t care because I know when I take them out it’s at least a good 30 minutes of fun and running around. My favorite time to play with bubbles is right before nap time—the running around gets him [Read more…]
Last year, for our anniversary, my husband gave me one of the best gifts he’s ever gotten me…a closet makeover! For the past 9 years, we’ve had the same closet with the standard wire racks all around the top. While this type of closet design is fine for most, my husband and I had been using separate closets for the past 9 years- me using our master bedroom closet and him using our son’s playroom closet. We both have way too many clothes and shoes and not enough space so it was time for a change! After multiple rack falls and fixes, I reorganized [Read more…]
With Christmas just about a week away, I’ve been doing some fun holiday crafts with my 3-year-old. A few weeks ago, during Thanksgiving, we made a turkey magnet which you can see here. It was so easy and quick that I decided to also make a Christmas Tree Magnet. We made a couple to give as gifts to grandparents and the few who can really appreciate a toddler’s one-of-a-kind artwork. [Read more…]

My 3-year-old son is finally at an age where we can do crafts together. I have found that over the past 6 months while teaching him the alphabet, I have used crafts to not only teach him letters but to also connect with him. Over Thanksgiving, we took a break from the alphabet to just focus on fun holiday activities. One of which is this [Read more…]
With Thanksgiving just about a week away, I’ve been doing some fun turkey crafts with my 3-year-old. One of my favorites is this Thanksgiving Turkey Magnet. Making this with J brought back some fond memories from when I was a kid. I don’t remember much from my early childhood but I do remember doing holiday crafts with my mom every year. I think that’s one of the reasons I make such a point to [Read more…]
