Bubbly Color Mixing

We have been exploring primary colors and color mixing. This morning I decided to take a science experiment and turn it into a mixing session. We used baking soda and vinegar with food coloring to create a rainbow of colorful bubbles!

I used a tray lined with foil to set up three small bowls of colored vinegar. I sprinkled baking soda all over the tray and placed an eye dropper on top of the tray....

She began mixing right away.

"Mommy I need something new to squeeze."

So I gave her a small turkey baster...


She mixed the yellow and red, then she went back to the eye dropper!

"Green!! Mommy do you see that? I made green with my blue and lellow."
Yes, she says "lellow."

She could not rest until she got some purple in there. :)

Happy Playing & Exploring!!
