8-20-12 Science Fun

Baking soda, vinegar, bottles, and food coloring

This afternoon Gus and I decided to experiment a bit with some things that we have around the house. He was very excited to help me pour the baking soda into the container and then said, "Oooohhhhh!!" when I squeezed the blue vinegar onto the baking soda. It made a fizzy sound and then bubbled and he clapped. :-)

I made the initial squeeze and then he was ready to play with the red, yellow, green, and blue colored vinegar. It was very easy to set up, cost next to nothing, and kept him very entertained for more than an hour. I loved watching him play and react to the sounds and reactions of the baking soda and vinegar. This is one we'll do again and again!!

Touching the baking soda

After it was fizzy he wanted to touch it

So pretty!

Lifting the bin to listen to the fizzing as the vinegar ran over the baking soda!


We were all done and he wanted to add more baking soda...

And was VERY upset that it was time to clean up!

We'll do this again for sure... I'm going to look online and see if there are other things that can be done with baking soda and vinegar and we'll see what happens!!
