Oh this worked out so well! If you have any resident magicians armed with their hats and cloaks and wands (scroll all the way down the link to find out how), then they will love making this Brilliant, Bubbling Brew!
The great thing about this quick project is that it requires very few goodies that you most likely have lying around your kitchen. It filled a rainy afternoon for us, but would be just as good outdoors on a sunny day! It is very impressive and even the most reluctant partaker will be drawn into the fun. This is what you are aiming for:
Let’s Meet The Players:
- A clean glass jar
- White Vinegar – half a jars worth
- Washing up liquid – just a dash
- Bicarbonate of Soda – a teaspoonful is quite enough
- Food coloring
Let’s Play The Game:
Half fill your glass jar with white vinegar.
Add a dash of washing up liquid.
Step 3: Add a drop of food coloring to your brew…
Step 4: Gently Stir.
Step 5: Add a pinch of glitter to your jar.
Step 6: Add a spoon fill of bicarbonate of Soda to your brew…
Step 7: Watch and wait… But not for long!!!
Of course it wasn’t enough to watch it bubble over, we had to stir and mix it round – and this is why we did the whole event on baking trays!!!
You may or may not have a chemist amongst your short magicians, who needs to know the buzz: The bicarb and vinegar mix together making heaps and heaps of tiny bubbles. The bubbles do a great job of stirring the washing up liquid, which naturally foams – excessively!
That was really fun and nearly no work – even the clean up took two seconds with a rinse off in the sink!
