Back in September, when my son first started Kindergarten, he insisted on doing some kind of experiment or project when he came home from school. Every single day. This was one of the first, when I still had that “Start of the School Year” energy.
It was fun to gather the items we needed (even years-old apple cider vinegar – which I wouldn’t recommend for this experiment), set up, and create the “dragon” – even if the resulting “foaming at the mouth” effect was a little disappointing. The directions come from a fantastic little book from Usborne Books: 50 Science Things to Make and Do. I highly recommend it for easy-to-follow and fun experiments.
Showing this to you will reveal not only my BAD MOMMY moment (at 45 seconds in) of terrifying my younger child, as well as my issues with messes – but I’m trying to get over that. (Not the scaring my toddler issue; that’s too much fun.) I have no problem with dust, of course. Just foaming dragon messes. Enjoy!
