We love this science activity that looks like crackling fireworks. This is a great summer science activity.  

Step 1: gather the following: food colouring, glitter, baking soda, vinegar, dropper, clear container 

Step 2: in the bottom of the container,  drop several drops of food colouring in different colours. Do not mix colours.

Step 3: Cover the bottom with a layer of glitter.

Step 4: Cover all the glitter with a layer of baking soda.

Step 5: Use dropper to add vinegar in drops until you see a reaction. You will see splashes of glitter explosions. 

This activity incorporates many learning areas based on our Four Pillars of Learning curriculum including: STEAM (science).
