Wondering what to do with your kinder kids for the July 4th holiday? Check out these cool, easy-to-make fireworks in a jar shared by Katie over at Gift of Curiosity! We love that the activity is hands-on, provides a fun connection to the holiday (with no loud cracks and booms these fireworks can be enjoyed by all!), and offers a fun look at what happens when oil and water come into contact with one another. Another great feature of the activity; Katie suggests using two different methods for coloring - food coloring and liquid watercolors. Changing up the experiment provides a great opportunity for students making comparisons/use comparative language to describe the effects of the change.

For the full list of supplies and some great pictures, be sure to visit Gift of Curiosity! Your kinders will love this little deviation from the norm!
