SIMPLE HOLIDAY SCIENCE KIDS LOVE

What is the science behind baking soda science? The vinegar is an acid and the baking soda is a base. When the acid and the base mix, they make carbon dioxide which you can hear with the fizzing.

You can actually feel the fizz too. The mixing of the two ingredients causes the eruptions like when you make a volcano! Gas rises. Think about when you shake a soda and then open it. Same idea!

So you have a cool science activity, but did you also know it’s a great fine motor activity. Scientists need to have great fine motor skills. Using eyedroppers and basters is a wonderful fine motor skills activity. The kids have to much fun to even notice they are practicing skills!
