Fizzing Targets

The kids have enjoyed their water guns this spring, but I decided to kick the FUN FACTOR up a notch!
Instead of water, I filled their guns with vinegar.  They shot at baking soda targets and watched them fizz.
As an added bonus, I hid drops of food coloring beneath the baking soda so they had no idea what colors their targets would be.

If you are married to a crazy yard guy like my hunky husband, he would greatly appreciate you not doing this in the back yard.
When the kids missed the target, the vinegar instantly killed the grass.  Yikes is right!
This actvitiy was SUPER simple.  Drop several colors of dye in a pan and cover with baking soda.and let the fun begin!
