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. ⁠

To create:⁠

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. ⁠

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!

Has this website and community helped you?

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