Icky, gooey experiments

Experiments. That’s what Luke calls his concoctions of flour, food coloring, water, dish soap, vinegar, and anything else he can dump into a bowl and stir. ‘Making experiments’ has been his favorite activity for a year now. Good, tactile fun.

If you have an hour to fill and are in the mood for some ooey-gooey goodness, put any or all of the following items on your kitchen table, and let your kids have at it.

  • baking soda and vinegar (when mixed, they bubble)
  • food coloring
  • flour
  • water
  • salt
  • dish soap (a little)
  • various spoons, cups, droppers, whisks, bowls and bottles

Consider placing the experiment supplies on a rimmed baking sheet on the table to control major spills.
