Are you looking for easy at home toddler activities? This baking soda and vinegar reaction is fun for toddlers up to preteens. You only need 2 simple ingredients to make the volcano bubbles, and three ingredients to make it blue.
At the time I’m writing this all the schools are closed. Which means everyone is looking for fun and easy at home toddler activities and other things to keep kids occupied at home!
This is a basic baking soda and vinegar reaction in a pretty jar with a galaxy blue color. The first time I use an old water bottle which overflowed onto my kitchen floor! The second time, which I took pictures of, I used a transparent green vase. Additionally I took it in the backyard for less mess to clean up.
All you need for this baking soda and vinegar reaction is 1/4 cup baking soda, 1 cup vinegar, 2 tbsp dark blue food coloring. The more vinegar you add the longer the bubbles will expand.
This type of at home toddler activities are so simple to make as well. Use a separate large mixing bowl to combine the baking soda and food coloring. Whisk together until combined. Then add the baking soda food coloring mixture into the jar or bottle. Slowly pour the vinegar into the jar.
Time needed: 10 minutes.

My kids and I did this activity in the backyard. My 2 year old was over the moon excited! However my 8 year old was less enthused but was still enjoying family time together. Today we are going to make 2 ingredient Playdough! This activity will also include food coloring so I might take it outside as well.
My 2 year old doesn’t need to be homeschooled because she’s so young. However my 8 year old is in second grade! So I feel like I need to make sure he is learning. That’s why I put together this basic homeschool schedule for beginners. It’s just a basic outline to help you (the parent/teacher) put something into place. I sure as heck don’t know what I am doing. But I can’t let my kids know that!
