Fizzy Fun

I am probably tempting fate by writing this post but it is worth it.

Today is probably to first time since the start of the school holidays that the boys have actually been getting on and cooperating with each other and it is wonderful.

They have been spent time the morning play on their scooters together without any arguments. Beeswax has been trying to teach Buzzbee new tricks without a cross word between them (absolutely unheard of). This afternoon Buzzbee has worn Beeswax down and he agreed to trying a science experiment from a book  he was given a couple of years ago.

So after raiding my cupboards the boys set about making their own Lava Lamps (Fizzy Fountains the book calls it)

You need Veg oil, food colouring (2 or more), water, effervescent tablets (1 per litre) and a bottle

Fill 3/4 of the bottle with oil

The boys took photos so Buzzbee could add it to his holiday diary but I wish I had videoed them. The shriek of delight and excitement that came from both of them when it began to fizz was music to my ears and it doubles as entertainment for Beedog who was frantically trying to catch the bubbles and barking excitably at the bottle (she wasn’t at the front of the queue when they were giving out brain cells).

    • I have to admit it looks great. The bubbles stay in the bottle – I was afraid it would bubble over. It eventually settles but the boys have rejuvenated it by adding a fresh tablet
