This Erupting Pumpkin Science Experiment mixes the magic of fall with the excitement of what happens when vinegar and baking soda meet!
- Vinegar - Baking soda - Pumpkin
Empty out the guts of the pumpkin.
We used a very small pumpkin: To the bottom of our pumpkin we added about a half a cup of baking soda.
To make the pumpkin erupt, we poured about a cup of vinegar in on top of the baking soda.
For a little extra fun, you can do this same experiment inside a jack-o-lantern.
The eruption will come out of the mouth of your carved pumpkin and your kids will think that’s pretty cool…unless they’re squeamish, then they might think it’s gross.
