Monster tea party

           

I had some baking soda dough left over from this activity so decided to get it out and put it to use. I thought it would be fun to set up a monster tea party! I placed the tablecloth on the floor and set up some tea party things; teacups, saucers, plates and teapots. The aim was for the baking soda dough to be spooned into teacups and the vinegar to be poured on top, making fizzing, foaming, monster tea.

         

The children couldn't wait to get started! They eagerly began to spoon the dough into cups.

          

Then they poured the vinegar into the teacups and watched the magic! It's not the first time we have experimented with baking soda and vinegar. We have done this activity a few times now and it is one of the children's favourites. It keeps them occupied for ages! 

They really loved this monster tea party, imaginative, invitation to play. It was wonderful to watch them role play and interact and amazing to see the wonder in their faces as they watched the magical reaction of baking soda and vinegar. I don't think they will ever tire of this!
