A Baking Soda and Vinegar Experiment for Preschoolers

This one's quick and easy - just 3 common kitchen ingredients!
A baking soda and vinegar experiment is one of those classic science experiments that always fascinates. It’s perfect for when the kids are bored! 
So easy and inexpensive to set up, this experiment can be done over and over again. 
What you'll need: 
  • Bicarb soda
  • white vinegar
  • food colouring
  • Baking tray
  • eye dropper or pippette 
Sprinkle the bicarb soda over the tray. Shake it carefully to evenly distribute.
Using the food colouring, squeeze drop of colour all over the bicarb soda. 
Drip the vinegar on top of the colouring. 
Fizz!
Using the eyedropper is great for developing fine motor skills, co-ordination, and grasp.
You guessed it - it ended up with the vinegar being tipped onto the tray, and a fun black soupy mess to play in!
