Super Easy Bath Fizzies

 The girls were so excited to make their own bath fizzies.   We were excited, too.  This activity gives you a great opportunity totally to kids about how science can be fun and easy.  It also gives you a chance to teach how important it is to follow directions.   As you will see in the recipe, if you pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients too quickly, you can cause a chemical reaction.  The kids had a blast—and they were really proud of their work.   We hope you enjoy this activity as much as we did!
