Young children love to pour and dump, and derive much joy from engaging their senses to investigate their surroundings.
As they manipulate various substances, they are observing the physical properties of the world around them.
By transferring materials and exploring how they interact, they are learning about density, weight, and volume, which form the foundation for critical thought.
For this particular activity, we combined baking soda and vinegar to create witch’s potions.
Each child enjoyed watching their potions foam and come to life!
