Bi-Carb Art

This is a great activity to do with your kids - it's science, art, and sensory play all in one!

What you'll need:

  • Ice cube tray
  • Vinegar
  • Food Colouring
  • Dropper/Syringe (we used a panadol syringe!)
  • Bi-Carb (a few boxes!)
  • Deep Dish

What you do next:

  • Empty bi-carb into your dish
  • Fill ice cube tray with vinegar
  • Add a few drops of food colouring to each cube of vinegar
  • Fill the dropper/syringe with vinegar
  • Squirt into the bi-carb
  • The bi-carb reacts with the vinegar and fizzes up!
  • Let your kids get creative with their colours to make a fizzy, colourful piece of art!
