Eyedropper Excavation

Trevor loves baking soda and vinegar activities.  We must do a variation of this classic chemical reaction almost weekly!

For this activity I poured some baking soda into muffin tins, and then added just enough water to make a thick paste.  I buried a few small plastic toys in each spot.  I set the tray out to harden for a few days.

After the discs hardened, I filled a container with vinegar and added an eyedropper.  Eyedroppers are such great tools for strengthening fine motor skills in kids.

After he had loosened up all of the toys through bubbly fun, I gave him a spoon to help scoop the toys out.  (More great fine motor work!)

He had a blast with this activity!  What is your favorite baking soda and vinegar activity?
