Setting up the Baking Soda and Vinegar Science Experiment


This cool science experiment for kids needs to be set up in a dish or tray as these fizzing potions do make a lot of mess! Inside the dish or tray set up your pots and test tubes. I'd really recommend using the science lab set as it comes with 2 small test tubes in a stand as well as a larger test tube, there is also a funnel, flask, beaker and eyedropper. 

Before inviting your child to come and make some magic potions set each test tube, flask or beaker up by adding a few spoons of baking soda, a couple of drops of liquid water colour and a sprinkling of glitter.  

To the side of the dish or tray set up a beaker filled with white vinegar. You could leave this as clear vinegar like we did or you could add colour.  Give your child a jumbo eye dropper so it is easy for them to transfer the white vinegar to the tests tubes, flasks and beakers. 

You will need something to mix the baking soda and vinegar together, you could use a spoon, a stick or we found magic wands worked perfectly!

Using a magic wand to mix the baking soda and vinegar works really well as it is easy to reach the bottom of even the taller containers and you can make up magic spells at the same time!

When Daisy (aged 3) had a go at this cool science experiment she started by adding small amounts of vinegar to the baking soda using the eyedropper, but before long she worked out that it was easier and you got better reactions by pouring beakers full of vinegar onto the baking powder.

Towards the end we were pouring the vinegar onto the baking soda straight from the bottle! The drops of liquid watercolour and glitter that we added when we set the activity up looked beautiful as we added more white vinegar to our magic potions

You could experiment with using a few different colours when making your magic potions. We used purple, red and blue colouring along with some gold glitter which worked really well.
