Painting with coloured lava!

Looking for an easy art activity for kids?

Why not brighten up the classic baking soda and vinegar experiment with some food colouring or paint? Perfect for an outdoor activity, or indoors in a big tray or tub.

Materials:

vinegar, baking soda, trays, cups or glass jars

Method:

1. Give each child a tray

2. Put 1 tbsp (15 grams) of baking soda in each cup

3. Add a few drops of food colouring or paint to each cup

4. Pour about 3 tbsp of vinegar (60ml) into each cup and get ready for the explosions of colour and bubbles!

5. Use a paint brush to mix the colours, or dip some paper into the coloured foam. Have fun!
