3 Kids Experiments With Baking Soda




Hi, my name is Jackson, I'm 5 years old. Today I'm going to show you 3 kid friendly experiments with Baking Soda and Vinegar. I am going to show you how to make a liquid fuel rocket, how to fill a balloon with CO2 and how to make a rocket boat. Lets begin!

Step 1: Experiment 1: Liquid Fuel Rocket

Gather your materials......you will need:

  1. Baking Soda
  2. Vinegar
  3. Recycled Soda bottle
  4. Scrap wood
  5. Cork

First we are going to make a launch pad. Take the scrap wood and make a cross, add some feet and secure the cork to the middle of the cross. Next, prepare your baking soda burrito. Place a table spoon of baking soda into the middle of a napkin or paper towel. Roll up the baking soda and twist off the ends so that it fits into the soda bottle. Add the burrito to the vinegar in the bottle and put upside down onto the cork. Stand back and wait for your rocket to launch!

Step 2: Experiment 2: Fill a Balloon

Gather your materials......you will need:

  • Baking Soda
  • Vinegar
  • Balloons

First, we are going to fill the bottle a quarter of the way with vinegar. Use a funnel to add 1 tablespoon baking soda into the balloon. Place the balloon over the bottle, lift the balloon allowing the baking soda to fall into the bottle. Watch as the balloon fills with CO2 gas!

Step 3: Experiment 3: Rocket Boat

Gather your materials......you will need:

  1. Baking Soda
  2. Vinegar
  3. Recycled Soda
  4. Soda lid with small hole
  5. Food Coloring

Put a small hole in the lid of the soda bottle. Then fill the bottle half full of vinegar & add food coloring. Add 1 tablespoon baking soda into the bottle and quickly put the lid on, holding a finger over the hole. Place in bathtub and watch it zoom across the water.

What will happen if you try another color.....
