Make your own mud pie science not using mud

If you have been following along you know we have been having a blast doing fun bubbling and fizzing science play. "J" was asking to play with the mud again from our dinosaur erupting sensory play, so I took out our stuff to make fun mud pies.

This is a very easy to set up science play and you can get everything you need at the Dollar Tree making this very inexpensive.

Baking soda($.50 for 12oz box at Dollar Tree)
Instant coffee($1.00 for 7oz bag at Dollar Tree)
Vinegar(we buy it by the gallon and it is $2.38 at Wal-Mart)
Squeeze bottle (We got our at Wal-Mart in the baking section 2 for $2.00)
Sprinkles($1.00 at Dollar Tree)

To make the powder base all you need to do is mix a box of baking soda(12oz) and instant coffee(3oz) together making sure it is all blended.

The kids had a blast and spent at least 45 minutes playing if not more. The great thing about this play is the main base is baking soda so it will keep bubbling when you squirt the vinegar on it. Just mix and doing it again.

This play is also a great fine motor skill for little ones squeezing the vinegar onto the Erupting mud

NOTE: When I put vinegar in the bottle I mix half vinegar and half water so you don't go through alot of vinegar.
