Erupting Pumpkin Science Experiment

This Erupting Pumpkin Science Experiment mixes the magic of fall with the excitement of what happens when vinegar and baking soda meet!

This experiment is perfect for all ages!


- 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.
