Color Mixing Fizzy Science
Saturday Science Blog Hop & Linky Party
Early Learning Science Experiment
Why Preschool Science?
Preschoolers are curious creatures. Science experiments, even very simple experiments fuel their curiosity for the world. Learning how to observe, how to talk about what they see and how to predict what might happen are amazing tools for the future! Experiments increase practical life and fine motor skills not to mention math and literacy skills.
Color Mixing Fizzy Science Set Up
We love the simple chemical reaction of baking soda and vinegar.
- baking soda
- food coloring
- serving tray (party store) or small containers
- eye dropper and squeeze bottle
I made a simple fizzy dough for this color mixing experiment. I used the same recipe for our fizzing melons sensory activity. Check it out! The dough is very simple to mix up and use immediately or freeze for a bit for a little frozen play! Divide mixture into containers or compartments of a serving tray. Provide three cups of colored vinegar from which the colors will be mixed. I added some color cues for him, so he could work independently. Add eye droppers and squirt bottles!
Eye droppers are awesome for strengthening hands and are great scientific tools for young children.
Squirt or squeeze bottle are another awesome hand strengthening tool and great for making a big fizz!
Yes, pouring all the vinegar in at once is great fun and makes for lots of fizzing action.
Take a moment and listen to the fizz, feel the fizz and talk about the bubbles. These are great ways to develop observation skills. Don’t tell your child what is going on, ask him questions! What do you feel? What do you see?
We have been working on simple science concepts, repeating similar types of experiments to build knowledge and reinforce learning skills. Young children need simple concepts repeated for greater understanding, so try a few ways and you will be amazed at how much they remember. This will build confidence for new learning experiences and curiosity to try new experiments!
