A few weeks ago, the big kids were home for a snow day so we decided to have a little science fun. For our exploration we used:
Heart Cookie Cutter Set
My older boys love to be my big helpers when they're home so they had fun setting this invitation up for the Daycare kids. I put a beach towel over the table to help contain spills and we put the cookie cutters on a cookie sheet. My 9 and 6-year-olds filled the cookie cutters with baking soda.
This was a fun way to work on fine motor skills as the little ones practiced squeezing liquid into and out of the eye droppers. And, I loved watching the older ones help my toddlers so they could participate in the fun! This would be a great activity for sibling bonding of all ages! This kept the kids busy for quite awhile even after the fizzing stopped. Everyone was working so well together!
