Magic Potion Experiment

So what’s new in today’s Pinterest experiment?  Magic potions!  What could be better than that for kids?  All it required was a clear cup/jar filled half way with vinegar.

A dash of liquid dish detergent (which I actually had to go on Twitter to figure out this ingredient because it was listed on the Minieco site as washing up liquid.  I was confused if that was hand soap, dish soap, body wash, etc.  Thank goodness for Twitter.) but I digress, a few drops of food coloring and a heaping spoonful of baking soda.

Then prepare to watch the eruption!

I loved watching Kaitlyn explain how all the bubbles pushing against each other makes everything go “splush!” and that’s why it overflows.

She enjoyed this so much we did it three times with three different colors and she started mixing them together to see what colors that would make.  Here’s the blue with the purple.
