Today we decided to try an experiment that I saw from one of my favorite bloggers, Mom To 2 Posh Lil Divas. Rather than tell my kids we were doing an experiment, I told them we were going to have fun with some magic potion spoons. What kid doesn’t love magic? My kids definitely had a lot fun, especially when trying to guess what color potion they would get next. We’ll definitely be doing this again soon!
- Clear cups or containers
- Food coloring
- Baking soda
- Tray or baking sheet (to contain mess)
First you’ll want to make sure your kids are occupied while you prepare this first part (that way it’s magical for them).
Then take your spoons (the # is up to you) and place a couple drops of food coloring on each.
Then have the kids choose a spoon and stir it inside a cup.
Look at the beautiful colors we created! The kids had so much fun that I might have to stock up on vinegar and baking soda. This is one activity they’ll be asking to do over and over again!
