Exploding Chalk Bag's

Your kids will be asking to do this again and again!  
Here is what you need:
Corn Starch
Food Coloring
paper towel
Baking Soda
Zip Lock Bags

I added vinegar and corn starch to the bag and dropped the food coloring in to get the desired color. I did not do any measuring just estimated.  Then I took a piece of paper towel and tore it to a smaller piece and added Baking Soda to the paper towel and wrapped it up.  The paper towel with Baking Soda is sort of like your ammo- it causes the reaction.  

Once outside I put the paper towel in the bag and zipped it closed and we watched the reaction take place.  Some of the bags took some time since I did not measure the baking soda.  

The pink bag took the longest to pop but it was quite a show to watch how huge the bag expanded. 

We did this activity a few weeks ago but my daughter has been asking to do it again. 

I also had it on old lumber and grass since I used food coloring and not a tempra paint.  I have fear of it staining the sidewalk.

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
