EDINA, Minn. - For most people, the fourth of July holiday makes for a long weekend spent with family and friends.
When everyone all gets together, it's nice to have some activities on hand, especially if there are kids around.
Our kitchen pantry scientist, Liz Heinecke always has some great, fun ideas for projects you can do with your kids, and it's not difference for the fourth.
We want to stress the importance of safety for this experiment and make sure all children are supervised, and because there is flame involved, you should be wearing safety goggles.
In honor of the Fourth of July, Liz will help you create "Black Snake Fireworks."
You can read all about the fireworks and how you can make your own on Liz's website.
