Today in the CDLL children were in the Maple room painting. They were not using traditional paint though, they were using paint that had baking soda in it and they would put vinegar on the area that they painted. The baking soda and vinegar would react and bubble on the paper. The children were mixing paint to see the different colors they could make. Also, they were testing how the different colors would react with the vinegar.

The children asked questions about why and how the paint was bubbling. Rohan stated, "There are a lot of bubbles in mine, why are there bubbles?" The children would also draw attention whenever they would create bubbles on their page. Audrey stated, "There are bubbles!" Graeme stated, "Look, I made bubbles!"
