Today I’m excited to welcome Asia from Fun at Home with Kids – not only is she a brilliant creator of play recipes, but she also has three books in print! If you want to spark your kids’ creativity with open-ended play ideas, you simply must follow her popular blog!
I’m thrilled to be guest posting for Anna! Not only is she a lovely friend, but I am a huge fan of her wonderful site. Over on our blog, we love things that fizz – it’s one of our favorite ways to play! I thought I’d share our favorite five activities that fizz with you today.

1 – First up is a staple – how to get the best baking soda and vinegar reaction every time! We tested a bunch of variations and shared the winner in this post.
2 – We can’t get enough of the vibrant swirling colors in our Fizzy Slush. If you store it in the refrigerator for a half hour before play it will stay refreshingly cool as you swirl and fizz the rainbow of colors.
3 – It’s so fun to watch rays of color explode as our Magic Foaming Treasure Stars react and release their hidden treasures.
4 – Our kids can sometimes be reluctant at bath time, but these Magic Hatching Dinosaur Eggs always convince them. Just add water and watch as the egg bubbles and hatches out a little toy you can play with in the bathtub!
5 – Our Fizzy Foaming Car Wash is a total favorite, both inside during the winter and outside in our water table in the summer. Bonus – your toy cars are squeaky clean afterward!
I hope you’ll have time to try one – or all five – of our easy recipes for some fun sensory play. If you’d like to see more of my ideas, you can find a ton in my books, 150 Screen Activities for Kids and The Curious Kids’ Science Book, on my blog, or follow me on Facebook or Pinterest.
