Hello Kinventors! I'm excited to have started a project that has been on my mind for a long time. You guessed it - science videos for Kinzie's ViewTube channel! (How did you know? The title gave it away, didn't it? Oh, well. I guess secret keeping is not my greatest strength.)
Starting today, I'll be making videos of simple but entertaining science demonstrations for parents, teachers and kids to watch and do at home. You can watch the video on my channel on YouTube, then click on the link in the description to be able to download and print the Kinstructions for the experiment on my Parent/Teacher Resources tab, which will always include a list of materials, step-by-step instructions, and a brief explanation of the science concept in the experiment.
Today's demo was called Blizzard in a Jar, using baby oil, water, white paint, glitter and sodium bicarbonate (a.k.a. Alka Seltzer). If you are making it at home with just a child or two, you may want to use the larger version, but if you're buying supplies for a group, I've also made an Itty-Bitty Blizzard version to be more economical. Big or small, expect uproarious reactions when the Alks Seltzer is dropped in and the bubble start, well, bubbling! (Insider Tip: It's wise to have extra Alka Seltzer on hand; they'll likely want to repeat this step over and over again.)
I'd love to have you join me on my journey. Check out my YouTube channel, like and subscribe, and click the bell for notifications when I post new demonstrations. And, pretty pleasy cherry freezie, tell your friends about it too. An honest recommendation means so much more than paid advertising ever could.
That's all for now. Read lots of books, do lots of science experiments, and have lots of fun!
