A couple of weekends ago, I had decided that we should do something fun. We didn't have anything planned, the weather was great and there was nothing stopping us. One mention of something fun to my kids and I didn't hear the last of it. All they wanted was for me to be done with what I was doing so they could start. On today's list was a science project! I am in love with my new Usborne book 365 Science Activities. Tons of projects with everyday household items that you most likely have. If you don't then they are very cost efficient. No doubt. In fact, any book by Usborne is a winner in my opinion. But I digress...back to the science project! My kids were so excited. We gathered our materials and we set off to do activity #22. Foaming fizz it is!
For those of you that do not have a science mind like me, you may not understand the concept of this activity. Don't worry, the book explains it for you too but it is very simple. Mix a base (baking soda) with an acid (vinegar or lemon juice) and you get a reaction! Add a little dish soap and you get foam! Add a little color and you get magic foam! Ha! This is really fun. Fun to do and fun to watch. It happens quick though so be ready if you want to take some photos.
So go ahead and gather your materials, gather your guts and just do what your kids want! They may not even know they want it but do it anyways because it is so fun. And, if you want to photograph the event, let me know! I will be there to help you through the sticky parts and interesting parts. Better yet, pick a project I haven't done and it will be more fun for me! HA! Contact me today for your lifestyle session. I can't wait to hear from you and what project you will pick. Any good reading you want to recommend for kids science projects? Comment below and I will check them out!
