We used powdered paint to add color to our mud play.  Rosie and Jewel loved decorating their creations before making them erupt into beautiful explosions of color. 

Tips/Resources:
  • We colored our vinegar using food coloring to make it even more fun!
  • Magic mud is only meant for one play time and should not be stored for future play.
  • When making magic mud there is no need to measure.  More baking soda just means more FIZZ!  To my kids that equates to heavy hands.  Happy playing! :)
