You know we love fizzing fun for kids. My boys could play with baking soda and vinegar every single day and not tire of it.
Anything that erupts, pops, explodes, fizzes, or bubbles is a huge hit with my boys, and I'm guessing the same holds true for just about any kid. Many of our favorite recipes for play include making something erupt.
