Sizzle Paint

You guys, not many people know this… but my pet unicorn, Sprinkles, has a huge science fascination. I guess it makes sense, as she she is magic… so science must seem out of this world to her. Well, Tuesday nights she sneaks off to her hometown in the Cotton Candy Kingdom and meets up with her Science Club. Yes, Science Club… a club full of magical and mythical creatures, who get together, to talk about things like carbon dating, the periodic table, formulas…. you know, all the stuff that they don’t really need to worry about because they can fly, grant wishes, and basically do anything that they want, with no physical forces or science stopping them in anyway. But hey– I am 28 years old and still listen to the Jonas Brothers on a regular basis, so who am I to judge?

Yesterday at breakfast, she told me that she had something fun to show me that she discovered at Science Club. At first I couldn’t really care less– but I pretended to be intrigued. She told me that she found a fun way to make a fizzy sort of paint and that her paintings made fun sounds and patterns. I was sold. We call it Sizzle Paint…. because of it’s fun sizzley sounds. You should totally try it for yourself!


Here is what you will need:

Liquid Watercolors or Food Coloring

Baking Soda





Watercolor Paper

Paint Brushes

(Note: I have seen quite a few recipes for fizzy baking soda paint projects, but my favorite one so far has been from a blog called: Learn Play Imagine. She has some truly wonderful stuff on there. I would highly recommend jumping on there to find all sort of fun projects to do with your little ones. This is her brilliant recipe. For directions for this project, please visit her page.)


Here are some pictures of our Sizzle Paint projects.
