Who doesn't love baking soda and vinegar science experiments?
This is a super simple science experiment that my kids loved.
Basically: We took some baking soda and vinegar, put them together in a plastic baggy, and watched it explode.
Warning: this is super messy. Do this outside. Or in the bathtub. It's sticky and fizzy and best washed off with a hose.
Step 1: Put some vinegar in your plastic baggy (we didn't measure). You can add some food colouring at this stage too, if you want.
Step 2: Twist the baggy at the middle and clamp it closed with a clothespin.
Step 3: Add some baking soda (we didn't measure).
Step 4: Seal the plastic baggy really well.
Step 5: Remove the clothespin and untwist.
Step 6: Watch it explode!
If it didn't explode, you need to add more vinegar or baking soda or both.
