We’ve had a few days in a row of GORGEOUS summer-like weather. We’re talking SUNNY and 75+ degrees. IN MARCH! I’m really starting to enjoy this California life. 🙂
Yesterday the girls and I went outside to do another baking soda and vinegar activity:
Baking Soda Paint
1 box of baking soda
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 cup of water (or thereabouts, add a little at a time until you reach the desired consistency)
spray bottle of vinegar
Mix up your paint, divide it among as many containers/colors as you like, then have the kids “paint” the sidewalk/patio/deck/ground. When they’re done(ish) painting, hand them the spray bottle of vinegar and have them spray their artwork. Watch in wonder as it foams and bubbles. Woah! Cool!
Cadence was too young to care about the vinegar part, but she loved the gooey, gritty texture of the paint. And yes, she even tried to eat some. That only happened once 😉 Adelaide LOOOOOVED the squirt bottle of vinegar and the resulting chemical reaction. We will definitely be repeating this activity!
Here are some pictures of their summer-fun IN MARCH!
