We show you how to make your own Fizzy Firework art. A science and art project combined, lots of fun for everyone. Create your own masterpiece!
With thanks to Lavina, who sent in this great fizzy fireworks idea. Let’s take a look at it…
What did you do?
We did something very cool today – we made fireworks fizz! It’s a fun twist on salt painting and the classic baking soda and vinegar experiment.
Draw fireworks using glue on a sheet of dark construction paper.
Sprinkle baking soda all over. Shift the powder around until you cover all the glue.*
Mix a few drops of food coloring or liquid watercolors with vinegar.
Use pipettes or droppers to squirt on paper and watch the magic.
*Keep a tray or something under to catch powder so it is easier to clean and reuse.
This was a fun way to do an outdoor art project with A – if you do it indoors, just use a large plastic lid or something under to make cleanup easier.
Do you have any other projects planned?
Lots of Christmas plays!
Tell the Housebound With Kids community a bit about yourself…
I have one child who is almost 2.5 years old and I work part-time. I’m based in the Caribbean but I’m from the USA.
Do you have any tips for other parents?
Prep in advance!! And water and ice plays are usually a lifesaver for me. And playdough!

I’m new to it but it looks amazing so far!
