Science is fun at all ages and our little ones especially love learning about the wonders of the world through science. This month with our theme being the Solar System, we have explored lots of crafts but we can even us science to have fun with space aliens!
We used a very simple concept of vinegar and baking soda reacting to cause a gas to blow up our aliens!
First we took some balloons and drew on our alien faces.
Then we added about a 1/4 cup of vinegar to an empty water bottle. We also added about a table spoon of baking soda into our balloons.
We then placed the balloon over the mouth of the bottle.
When we were ready we tipped the balloons to allow all the baking soda to fall into the bottle and mix with the vinegar.
The results were instant! The gas and bubbles started to form and the balloons filled up revealing our alien faces!
This got a great reaction from the kids and was fun for the moms too.
