Your Supplies:

  • baking soda
  • vinegar
  • food coloring
  • cookie sheet
  • eye dropper
  • small bowls
  • toothpicks (we ended up not using these)

Exploding creatures (2)















Pour a small amount of vinegar into the small bowls, add a few drops of food coloring and mix.  This is not an exact science.

Spread a fair amount of baking soda on a cookie sheet.

Drop the vinegar mixture onto the cookie sheet with the eye dropper!  Watch as it fizzles and explodes!
