I am always looking for fun things we can do with the kids outside and this pin was a MAJOR success for my son! SUPER easy and SO fun to make!
Items Needed:Corn Starch
Film Canisters (I found mine online at Amazon)
Fill the film canister about 1/4 full with Corn Starch
Add food coloring for color as desired (I did 7 drops)Add water until your canister is 3/4 full and stir it all together.
Break up an Alka Seltzer tablet into 3-4 pieces. HINT: I originally bought the WRONG Alka Seltzer. I bought the capsules. Make sure you buy the tablets. AND, I used generic… they worked just fine!
Drop your tablet pieces in your canister, put the lid on, place it on the ground upside down and back away!!!!
Film Canisters: $8 (and you can reuse them)
Generic Alka Seltzer $5 for 36 tablets
The rest I found around my house}
My kids can’t wait to do this again! For detailed instructions and pictures, you can visit my blog.
