Science meets art in these Colorful Explosions!

Updated: Aug 4, 2019

Here is a super fun activity for kids of all ages that you can do with ingredients you will find in your pantry. We call them colorful explosions.



There are lots of different ways you can go about doing this. You will need these 3 ingredients to get started: food coloring, white vinegar and baking soda.


You will also need to have a container in which to make the explosions happen, you can use egg cartons or a large mixing bowl. You will need containers for mixing the food coloring and white vinegar, paper cups or small bowls work well for this. Lastly it is helpful if you have little droppers. You can buy them here on amazon, or you can probably find some left over from when your kids were babies and you had to administer medicine from a plastic syringe or dropper.
