Magic Dissolving ABC Rocks 2013

Post by Admin on Sun Sep 15, 2013 6:35 am

2013 2013 2013 <span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">I saw this absolutely great idea on <a href="http://www.funathomewithkids.com/2013/03/simple-small-worlds-fizzing-hidden.html" target="_blank">Fun at Home with Kids</a> and wanted to recreate it for my son. Instead of hiding treasure or animals, I decided to hide some plastic letters.&nbsp;</span><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-I8DAeWSkaiI/Ug6rXbkvvHI/AAAAAAAAGKg/JFoX6Knwapg/s1600/ABCRocksColl.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="" border="0" height="400" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-I8DAeWSkaiI/Ug6rXbkvvHI/AAAAAAAAGKg/JFoX6Knwapg/s400/ABCRocksColl.jpg" title="Craftulate: Magic Dissolving ABC Rocks" width="203" /></a></div><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"></span><br /><a name='more'></a><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">The first thing I did was to make some baking soda dough. I started with 1 cup of baking soda and 1/4 cup of water and mixed them together. When the dough started to hold together I added a few drops of food colouring.&nbsp;</span><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-uYF5WRw2PWY/Ug6oPjkgVUI/AAAAAAAAGI8/StkAf9VLFpw/s1600/P1040529.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="" border="0" height="200" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-uYF5WRw2PWY/Ug6oPjkgVUI/AAAAAAAAGI8/StkAf9VLFpw/s200/P1040529.JPG" title="Craftulate: Magic Dissolving ABC Rocks" width="172" /></a><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-vx9lFQhfVFM/Ug6oP3Ylm6I/AAAAAAAAGJA/yg13eoeD6qc/s1600/P1040530.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="" border="0" height="170" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-vx9lFQhfVFM/Ug6oP3Ylm6I/AAAAAAAAGJA/yg13eoeD6qc/s200/P1040530.JPG" title="Craftulate: Magic Dissolving ABC Rocks" width="200" /></a></div><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">Then I took a small handful of the dough and wrapped it around a plastic letter. One batch of the above recipe made enough to cover three letters, so I did three batches in different colours. This only made 9 rocks but I hoped this would be enough to start with. I concentrated on using the lower case letters as F needs a bit more practice with these.&nbsp;</span><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-jIJ1z3Fdimc/Ug6oWYHM9QI/AAAAAAAAGJM/Z0k1HZ-rZLw/s1600/P1040531.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="" border="0" height="303" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-jIJ1z3Fdimc/Ug6oWYHM9QI/AAAAAAAAGJM/Z0k1HZ-rZLw/s320/P1040531.JPG" title="Craftulate: Magic Dissolving ABC Rocks" width="320" /></a></div><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">I left the rocks to solidify overnight.&nbsp;</span><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-a1Is5As2N6M/Ug6ogTV1gfI/AAAAAAAAGJU/VcKs9AV_0E0/s1600/P1040532.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="" border="0" height="231" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-a1Is5As2N6M/Ug6ogTV1gfI/AAAAAAAAGJU/VcKs9AV_0E0/s320/P1040532.JPG" title="Craftulate: Magic Dissolving ABC Rocks" width="320" /></a></div><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;"><br /></span><br /><span style="font-family: Trebuchet MS, sans-serif;">The next day I placed one rock in a foil tray and spritzed on some vinegar.
