Fizzing science experiments are very popular around here! Did you know that fizzing science is chemistry too? What makes the fizz and bubble, and the pop? A chemical reaction, of course!  All this week for the 100 Days of Summer Activities we will be exploring awesome fizzing science experiments.  Our easy to set up  science experiments and activities using common household ingredients.  Suitable for indoors or especially fun to take outside!

FIZZING SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS FOR KIDS

Fizzing science experiments chemistry activities for kids STEM

SIMPLE CHEMICAL REACTIONS

What comes to mind when you think of a typical chemistry experiment? My guess would be a volcano! Of course, we have tried quite a few varieties of volcano chemical reaction around here including using fruit, LEGO, and sand. We also explore pop rockets and popping bags, surprise eggs and fizzing castles. Plus we have more awesome soda science experiments!

AMAZING FIZZING CHEMICAL REACTIONS

Why not build a quick and easy SUMMER SCIENCE TABLE for outdoor science play stop! You could also put together a homemade science kit for science learning all summer long!

1. BAKING SODA VOLCANO

We have taken a classic baking soda and vinegar science experiment and given it some unique twists over the years! Check out three different volcano experiment ideas.

SAND VOLCANO EXPERIMENT

Build your volcano right in your sandbox or scoop sand into a plastic tub/container for this fun fizzing experiment.

EXPLODING WATERMELON

Fruit volcanos are our specialty. It all started with pumpkins, then apples and now a watermelon!

LEGO VOLCANO

Have your kids build a LEGO volcano for fizz and bubble fun!

PUKING PUMPKIN

Get ready for a simple science activity the kids are going to go crazy. This fizzing science activity has been dubbed the puking pumpkin around here!

2. POP ROCKS EXPERIMENT

Pop rocks are a must try candy and science activity even if just once! Yes, it’s tons of sugar but the popping and fizzing are perfect for this week’s fizzing science experiments theme!

TRY OUR NEW POP ROCKS AND SODA EXPERIMENT!

3. POPPING BAGS

Will it pop? The perfect fizzing science activity to take outside!

4. MENTOS VOLCANO

Setting off a Mentos geyser is definitely a classic science experiment. You can simply do this cool fizzing science activity as is or you can incorporate the scientific method for kids and test out different sodas and different amounts of Mentos.

5. ALKA SELTZER ROCKETS

My son had a great time with these mini pop rockets. Another great fizzing science experiment to take outdoors!

Also try out our classic Alka Seltzer Experiment!

6. LAVA LAMPS

Have your kids ever seen a lava lamp? Well these aren’t exactly the same but they still look pretty cool! Also check out our Valentine’s Day erupting lava lamp.
