Kids just love science experiments, they’re naturally curious, they want to know how and why and to have a go at finding out. Encourage it all you can! Little scientists are fab!
This simple reaction between the vinegar and baking soda is enough to blow up and balloon. If there’s one thing kids love more than science it’s definitely balloons!
What we used:
- Clean empty bottle
- around 300ml of vinegar
- 3 tsp baking soda
What we did:
- First pour the vinegar into the empty bottle.
- Next squeeze a couple of tsp baking soda into the balloon.
- Fasten the balloon over the top of the entrance to the bottle – without tipping in the baking soda.
- Once the balloon covers the bottle – gently lift the balloon up and tip the baking soda directly into the vinegar.
- The reaction between the vinegar and soda creates carbon dioxide which inflates the balloon.

A fab thing to do with kids UK.
