Shimmering Snowflakes Botanical


Erupting Botanicals (this is not playdough!)

The purpose of Little Munchkins Botanicals are to create a magical fizzing potion for children to explore. Just add water! Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate is a base, citric acid is an acid. When water is added the acid base combination reacts to from carbon dioxide which makes the mixture fizz and bubble. End result is sodium citrate, carbon dioxide and water. Add small quantities with a wooden spoon (option to use own gloves) of your fizzy mix to a container, a bowl will suffice, pour over water and watch your mixture fizz and bubble. The reaction will take place with as little or as much mixture you want to use.

Although care is taken when creating Little Munchkin's erupting botanicals they are made in a facility where it may come in to contact with allergens such as wheat, dairy, celery, eggs, nuts.

Erupting Botanicals may vary in colour slightly due to the way it is made. Each botanical it lovingly hand mixed.

Each erupting botanical is made from plant based products. Just add water and watch the magic. Avoid contact with eyes.
