Cute Heart Craft With Baking Soda
Love is in the air and I have a fun activity your kids will LOVE. 😉
I love doing crafts with my kids, even though they are older! This is great for any age kids and the perfect way to spend time with them. They will love watching the cool chemical reaction and be able to put on their helping hands to construct it.
Kids love being able to help and make things, and these crafts for kids are just perfect – they can totally do this on their own! Little ones, of course, may need a little extra guidance from you. 🙂

- 1 cup of baking soda
- Pink and blue food coloring

- Plastic spoon
- Paper towel in case of spills
Set the cookie cutters on the tray.
Spoon the baking soda into cookie cutters and use the spoon to even out the baking soda.
Add 10 drops of pink food coloring to the vinegar and stir.
Add 10 drops of blue food coloring to the vinegar and stir.
Fill the dropper with food coloring vinegar.
Squirt liquid onto baking soda. Alternate between colors until the heart is covered completely!
