Frugal and Fun activities for kids – A “Magic trick”

A while ago I played a fun “magic trick” on the kids, that resulted in this kind of reaction:

I started with four glasses – three with water and one with vinegar. Four spoons with baking soda with drops of food colouing hid under it.

Add two cute kids

and surprise them when the water changes colour and the final one bubbles up!

Of course Ewan who needs to experiance activities with all his senses tried to taste it!

And wanted to figure out how it worked and have a go himself.

The kids loved it and wanted to do it every time a friend came to visit – until I ran out of vinegar!

I got the idea here – she has better instructions and pictures!
