I recently received some red, silver and blue loose glitter from our friends at craftprojectideas.com (check out their site redesign!!) and I really wanted to do something for 4th of July. I remembered that we used glitter in our Sparkle Science Fun activity a few years ago – a classic baking soda and vinegar experiment that never fails to excite the kids! I thought we could make a patriotic version with the glitter and it would look a little like exploding fireworks!
I dropped little dots of red and blue food dye in the base of a white baking dish.
Then I sprinkled the base with the glitter.
I covered everything with a layer of baking soda, and poured some vinegar into a squeeze bottle.
My son squeezed the vinegar over and the baking soda erupted – at first it was white but then the colors popped through – and the glitter!
Lots of glitter!
We added more vinegar and got more glitter fireworks!
It was all over rather quickly but luckily I had quite a lot of baking soda and vinegar on hand for repeated fun!
