Explosive Art

We made some explosive art using paint, baking soda, and vinegar in baggies. Directions found here at Share and Remember.


It was really neat.

But following the recipe and staying on the paper were only the beginning. Free for all is more our style.

After making several exploding baggies, CB declared, "And now, I'm going to experiment."

And they both did their own thing.


CB: It's thick. I didn't add in much vinegar. I added in lots of baking soda.
I'm being a scientist.
And for the grand finale!
The purple is the star of the show!


BBD: I'm mixin'.
This needs some red. {insert each and every color}
I need more vinegar.
I need more baking soda.

Prettiest puddle ever.


The paper became rather obsolete.


"Daddy's going to like all these colors on his concrete!"
