Science Wrangling Wednesday: Explosions

 

Color Explosions

This is a very simple experiment, and it is super easy to do!  It’s just a fun experiment to break up the week.

Materials:

  • 3 bowls
  • baking soda
  • food coloring
  • vinegar

Take 3 bowls and put 2 Tbsp of baking soda in each one.  Add a few drops of food coloring on top of the baking soda.IMG_8080Let one of the kids slowly pour 1/2 cup of vinegar into each bowl.IMG_8091

The trick is not to let them know what color is in the bowls! IMG_8099

It’s always fun watching stuff bubble over 🙂IMG_8108 IMG_8112In the end, you will just have smelly bowls, a clean stove and happy kids!  Can’t beat that 🙂
