It's science week here in Australia so @new_trick_kids classic baking soda and vinegar experiment is the perfect share! Read on below to find out how to conduct her mystery colour activity simply by using some staple kitchen items.

You probably know the trusted vinegar and baking soda activity, but this set up is perfect 👌🏼 for toddlers and preschoolers 👧🏻🧒🏽! I was a little nervous to try this one with E because I wasn't sure how she'd react 🤔...but I’m so glad I gave it a shot! I first saw this one on @msmakinson's feed (Check her out! Her and her little one are adorable!)
To create this Mystery Color activity, grab a muffin tin (I know, another muffin tin activity 😂), baking soda, food coloring, and vinegar. You'll also need a tool to add the vinegar to the baking soda, choose an appropriate tool depending on your child's development (items such as squeeze bottle, squirt bottle, syringe, and spoons 🥄 work great.) Place a drop or two of food coloring 🌈 in each section of the muffin tin and top with some baking soda. For E (17M), we I filled a squeeze bottle with vinegar and placed the entire muffin tin inside our sensory bin to capture some of the mess 🙌🏼. Our focus for this activity was on language development 🗣, specifically color identification, but it's also filled with sensory play and fine motor practice.
First, I modeled how to use the squeeze bottle to squirt a section of the muffin tin.❗️Modeling for your child is so important, remember they have to be taught what is expected. We celebrated 👏🏼 and I said, "Wow! Look, we made purple foam! Can you say purple?" E practiced repeating the color name with every mystery color revealed 🙌🏼. I was shocked that E absolutely loved this one! She dipped her hand in each section, never tried to taste the vinegar mixture, and the mess was much easier to clean up than I expected 😍.
P.S. Don't forget to supervise and guide your child while they explore!
Happy #nationalrelaxationday ! @holibabe365 and I celebrated by having a lazy morning. He played in the basement while I read and drank my coffee. Every so often he would walk over to me and give me a big hug. We are usually on the go somewhere every morning, so it was nice to stay in our pjs and move slow. It was the perfect morning, but by the afternoon I was itching to get out of the house, I’m not really a homebody. We went to one of my favorite places to walk around, Hobby Lobby.
Let us know, how do you like to relax and how did you celebrate #nationalrelaxationday ?
Tomorrow we are celebrating #nationalbratwurstday . Shoot us your ideas for how we should celebrate. You can join in on the fun too!
Ameen 👦🏻 found the perfect spot on our Garage Door to display his new PicassoTiles 136 Piece S.T.E.A.M. Building Block Set! @picassotiles .
PicassoTiles has done it again. PT136 Math, Science, and Art All in One Set is enabling kids to learn by playing and being artistically creative..
Swappable Magnetized Insert Cards and 16 Craft Art Pieces to foster creativity beyond imagination and extent the child brain development..
Learning is Fun. Learning by Playing is awesome too! It’s never to early to start developing children’s S.T.E.A.M. skills from visual learning, strong sense of color, motor skills, geometrical shapes, magnetic polarity, mathematics, numbers counts, magnetic polarities, 3D architectural design and structural engineering..

We love this summertime scene. What’s the weather like where you are? And are you at the beginning, middle, or end of your school year?
St Peter’s at Stockton engaged @MNCatholicSchools Early Learning Education Officer, Kim Moroney, to develop a new outdoor play area. The area features a fairy garden, chalkboards, a mud pit, a kitchen, a magnetic board and a shop front.
😍👏🏼 Tomorrow is the day! Our super duper awesome activity magazine and website will ready to you tomorrow! Fun fact- the magazine is available in print and digital and can be shipped anywhere! 🙌🏼 The to do list is ALMOST all crossed off...can’t wait to share everything with you!
We don’t start school officially until after Labor Day so these last few weeks consist of collecting our books for the year. I found these two books to combine with Exploring Nature with Children. I’m so excited about using these with the three youngest kids this year. ❤️
Sensory processing is not an easy concept to understand, however, in my new blog post "What is Sensory Processing" I explain it in the simplest terms so you can understand it. Link will be in profile! If you have heard about this term but are still wondering why sensory processing is so important or why it is emphasized so greatly by pediatric occupational therapists, this post is for you. It will also help you identify what poor sensory processing means and what are some red flags to consider.
💕Mud Kitchen Fun!💕
We love going to our @curiousmeqld class 😃 Logan has a blast learning through nature play and messy play, as well as building independence through play! I love watching his thought process as he creates and cooks in the awesome mud kitchen area!!
Because it's Buwan ng Wika, I am introducing another Filipino game to Carlos - - "Tumbang Preso". Unfortunately we don't have "lata" (tin cans) so we used his stackers and water bottles instead. #larongpinoy#buwanngwika
😱 Just two days left! This Thursday our activity magazine and website will be ready for action! ❗️Fun fact- Our activity magazine is specially designed for ages 0-5 and uses simple items from around the house! 🙌🏼
