We are doing camp at church this week, for the 4-7 year old crowd, with a theme of "Rainbow Camp". The Rainbow is a way to remember the UU 7 Principles, but doing a rainbow theme is also a great excuse for a bunch of fun activities with color!
And this idea, which I got from the blog Salt and Chocolate, was a huge hit. Baking soda in trays, with small containers of vinegar colored with food coloring. I mixed it up a bit and did some water and some vinegar and didn't tell the kids which was which, so they got the surprise of not knowing if it was going to fizz or not. Some pipettes so they can drop it on the baking soda, and they would have happily just kept going with this activity.
