Supplies for Flower Fizzy Painting
- Baking Soda
- Flower template
- White Distilled Vinegar
- Tissue paper
- Cricut (optional)
- White cardstock
- Food Gel Coloring
- Plastic Mini Cups
- Jumbo eyedroppers
- First, you need to download, print and cut out the flower template on white cardstock. Place the flower on a tray, plastic tablecloth or old newspaper.
- Next, create a baking soda paint by mixing 2 tbsp of baking soda with 5 drops of food coloring. Mix to form a wet paste. You can add a few drops of water to get the right consistency.
- Let the messy fun begin! Paint your flower using the paste.
- Add vinegar to the jumbo dropper then squirt the flower to create a cool chemical reaction. Set aside to dry.
- Let your child use safety scissors to cut the tissue paper into small pieces. This will be used for the center of the flower. I suggest using one color but leave this decision to your child. If they are not ready for scissors, let them tear pieces of tissue paper for this craft.
- Crumple the tissue paper into small balls then set aside.
- Finally, once the flower is dry, use a pencil to draw a small circle in the center. Then glue the crumpled tissue paper inside of the circle.
