Baking Soda Explosion

sodaTo do this explosion, you need

1 tablespoon of vinegar

2 tablespoons of baking soda


When you mix them together it overflows. I like it because it’s like a volcano.

You don’t have to do it in the basement but you at least have to do it in a big bowl otherwise it will make a huge mess.

  4. Hi James,

    I read your mom’s blog and thought I’d stop by here. My kids love to do that experiment too. Sometimes they use food coloring with the vinegar. We live in Florida and they like to bury an empty water bottle with the baking soda in the sand like it’s a volcano, then poor the colored vinegar in and watch the fun!

    I’m glad that you’re liking to write in your blog. Keep up the good work! Janet

  5. Adding some food color and making a flour and water volcano [paint it!] around it makes this even cooler! Be sure to do it all OUTSIDE though!!! You’re doing such a nice job with your blog!

  9. My mom showed me your blog, and I really like it. I did an experiment like that once at my neighbor’s house and we kept trying to add other stuff to it. That was really fun.

    Visit my blog sometime and tell me how you like it.

  10. This may be some TMI, but I thought you might like to watch a segment on the nasty jelly beans — they aren’t the kind I want to find in MY easter basket

  11. Hey, great idea! I’ll have to do this experiment with Cole and Cate. They love making volcanoes out of their mashed potatoes, meatballs, and peas when we have those for dinner.
