One of the items on our Summer Checklist is "learn a new joke or magic trick". Magic tricks can be tough for little ones, but this one is really simple and lots of fun. (It is based on one I found at HowDoesShe.com.)
Here's how my boys used "magic words" to turn clear liquid into a colorful magic potion.
Step 1 - Put a couple drops of food coloring onto spoons.
Step 2 - Cover the food coloring with baking soda.
Step 3 - Fill glasses (half full) of vinegar.
Step 4 - While saying magic words, stir the baking soda into the vinegar.
The kids will love watching the clear liquid turn into a colorful and foamy fountain.
Do you think your little ones would love fooling friends with this simple magic trick?
