Wizard Potion

Rainy days are perfect for science experiments. Today was such a day at my house. I knew something was up when my daughter asked for vinegar, oil, dish soap, glitter, baking soda, and food coloring. Then she got out a glass jar and cookie sheet. It was going to be a big production.

She poured half of the bottle of vinegar into the jar, followed by some food coloring and oil. Then she squeezed in a bit of dish soap. She mixed that together with a spoon. Then she sprinkled the whole concoction with gold glitter.

"Now for the final touch," she announced as she poured in some baking soda. The whole thing began fizzing and sudsing right out of the jar. It was a good thing she had that cookie tray!

"What is this concoction?" I asked.

"Don't you know?"

"Um, no."

"It's a fizzy wizard potion!"

Of course.
