Have you tried a FIZZY SCIENCE EXPERIMENT?
Fizzy science, as I call it, is SUPER FUN, EASY TO PREP, and ALWAYS GETS KIDS EXCITED!
This science experiment can easily be switched to fit ANY theme and can be done using just a few household ingredients!
This kid-friendly science experiment uses baking soda and vinegar and teaches kids about chemical reactions!
KIDS LOVE these types of experiments because they can SEE the change which gets them excited and asking questions! YAY!
If you’re celebrating the 4th of July this week, I’ve got ya covered with a red, white, and blue fizzy science experiment.

- Baking Tray
- Baking Soda
- Food Dye
- Cookie Cutters
- Ice Cube Tray
NOW FOR THE FIZZY FUN!
Add various cookie cutters to a tray or shallow dish.
Add 3-5 drops of food color to the inside of each cookie cutter and ice cube hole. (HIDDEN SURPRISE!)
Cover the food dye drops with BAKING SODA so the color can’t be seen.
Pour vinegar into small cups and pair with droppers.
Give your child the cups of vinegar and have them squeeze and release the vinegar over each baking soda pile.
WATCH AND OBSERVE!
HELLO FIZZY CHEMICAL REACTION!
LISTEN! What do you hear?
LOOK! What do you see? My girls LOVED the COLOR surprises as they squeezed and added vinegar over each.
This is definitely a MUST-DO science experiment for kids! Give it a try and let us know how it goes.
What do you think? Would your kiddos enjoy this activity?
Wishing you all a happy and safe Fourth of July!
