We are crazy for anything resembling art or science that involves baking soda/vinegar around here. So much actually that we broke down and bought the ginormous sack of baking soda and twin pack of huge jugs of vinegar at Sam's Club a couple of months ago and we are already getting down to the last couple of crumbs and drops 😜 We've tried so many variations of this classic science experiment from apple volcanoes to Babble Dabble Do's Wizard's Brew (if you haven't tried that one, you need to!!), but this one knocked our smocks off -- so, sooo good!!

My good instabuddy and total momma rock star, Nicole @ThePaintedToddler, inspired some seriously spooktacular backyard fun at our house with her Witches Brew rainbow fizzy STEAM idea and I couldn't wait to share it with you!

Wanna try it?


1. Put enough baking soda in your pie plate to cover the bottom.
2. Sprinkle glitter and sequins over the baking soda.
3. Pour vinegar into cups and squirt food coloring in each one.
4. Plop a pipette into each cup.
5. SQUIRT and watch the magic happen!

Isn't it funny how the addition of some sparklies can make something so simple so much more fun? We played with these potions for a good hour out on the back patio and Kinley has been asking to do it again since the moment I brought all of that mess inside to wash up! Four blue-ish purple-y thumbs WAAAAAAAY up from us!

This one is fun anytime, but it would be a extra rad for Halloween, wouldn't it?!

Thanks again for the awesome inspiration, Nicole!! If you give this a go and post it on Instagram or Facebook, tag us (@raising.kinley) and her (@thepaintedtoddler) -- I'm sure we'd all love to see your super gorgeous potions 😀

Happy fizzing!
