Make Quick and Easy Bath Salts
As young children explore their environment, they begin to learn that things can be classified in many ways, such as into solids and liquids. This activity will allow your child to experiment with solids and liquids and introduce her to the concept of change in science.
Use the activity below to help your child create bath salts, as she observes how a solid changes when placed into a liquid. These fragrant bath salts can be enjoyed at home, or packaged as a special gift for a friend. If you're looking for a quick, kid-made gift for Mother's Day, look no further!
What You Need:
- Epsom salt
