Baking soda and vinegar science is super exciting for kids of all ages! Baking soda activities are perfect for the youngest scientist to test out. Simple kitchen ingredients make fizzing science experiments fun and easy for everyone. This chemical reaction is one of our top 30 Preschool Science Activities.

Experimenting with Baking Soda Science!

Baking Soda Science Activity for Preschool Science

This is our first ever adventure with baking soda science activities { my son was 3 years old}! He is now 7 and is still in love with this simple chemical reaction. He can tell you so much more of the science behind the reaction from the many times we have repeated these experiments in new ways.

We also have 10 unique summer baking soda ideas to try as well.



  • Baking Soda
  • Vinegar
  • Muffin Tin
  • Food Coloring
  • Eyedropper
  • Paper Towels

Get your baking soda science activity ready in minutes. A simple muffin tin, small bowls, and an eye dropper are all you need. Maybe a few paper towels too!

Mix little bowls of vinegar with liquid food coloring for an added effect. You can even work on color mixing with your baking soda science play.


Let the exploring and experimenting begin! Make sure to let your lid lead the learning and play as much as possible.


Eye droppers make for great fine motor skills practice and they are fun to use too!

Baking soda science is also terrific for talking about the 5 senses. You can hear, feel, smell, and touch the reaction.


Let your child dump and mix. Encourage their exploration by allowing them to choose how to experiment with the activity.



For a dramatic end, make a big reaction by dumping vinegar into a small bowl of baking soda!


Baking soda science experiments have a great WOW factor!

Encourage your little scientist with simple and fun science activities to build curiosity.
