This was a fun surprise for the boys! They had no idea what was under the baking soda.  I told them to squeeze some vinegar on the baking soda to see a surprise!  They have done many experiments with baking soda and vinegar adding the color as a surprise underneath was a fun change.  Thanks for the the idea @bubblesandbellylaughs

Baking Soda
Baby food jar or cup
Food Coloring
Mini muffin tin

First put food coloring in the muffin tins. We did 5 drops in each.  Then cover the food coloring with baking soda.


Fill a baby food jar or cup with vinegar.  Then give your child a pipette and let them have fun playing!  What happens when you mix baking soda and vinegar? The boys were surprised to see the different colors!
