POP ROCKS SENSORY PLAY EXPERIMENT

As part of my ongoing series, ABC Sensory, we’ve been exploring a different sensory activity for each letter of the alphabet.  And for today’s letter K sensory play, K is for KABOOM!

We’ll be experimenting with pop-rocks and the sounds that they make!  In this post I’ll show you exactly how easy it is make your own mini Pop Rocks sound experiment.  Plus, I created a FREE checklist to help you along the way.  Click the link to get access before getting started: FREE Idea Checklist: How To Create ABC Sensory Bins.

DIRECTIONS

Open the pop rock packets and fill the bottom of your clear plastic cup with pop rocks.

Have your child get close and listen.

Slowly pour a small amount of water into the cup and listen to the “pop” and “crack” sounds as the pop rocks explode!

To add another element to the experiment, have your child hold the cup in their hands while you add the water.   Not only will they be able to hear the pop rocks, but they’ll also be able to FEEL them popping!

EXPERIMENT

Experiment with different packets of pop rocks and different amounts of water.  Try separating the pop rocks by color or mixing them all together in one cup.  Try adding a small amount of water, or a whole lot.  Which way makes them pop louder?

SNEAK IN SOME LEARNING

As your child is playing, try asking questions like:

“What letter are we learning about today?”

“What sound does the letter K make?”

“K is for what?…. Kaboom!”
