Science Along the Way: Chemical Reactions at Easter

Can you recognize this picture?

Yes! This is a tablet from our Easter egg dying kit, dissolving in vinegar earlier this week.

While we were enjoying the show, I realized that this was a fantastic example of a chemical reaction. There was a color change and gas production, both hallmarks of a chemical change.

We could see it, hear it and touch it.  Using multiple senses is always a bonus!

 Easter was last week.  You can consider this my "being a real mom" confession.  My kids still got excited! 

What piece of nature has excited you and yours this week?
