Kids will have fun magically transforming baking soda and vinegar into a witches brews as they learn about chemical recations and explore colors.
Learn how to make extra bubbly witches brews with our special ingredient, have fun color-mixing, and experimenting with acids and bases with this fun Halloween project.
The baking soda and vinegar reaction is one of the best at-home science experiments that simply requires two basic items from the kitchen, mixing them together,, and watching your kids be amazed at the results!
All of my kids LOVE this activity starting with my oldest child (Little Tiger, age 10) to my middle child (Little Dragon, age 8) to my youngest child (Little Puppy, age 3). We have done it for years now and it never gets old, I think it must be considered a Halloween tradition in our house now.
