Colored Vinegar and Baking Soda

During the summer we tried to do some fun things to keep all these little ones busy.  It was hard to come up with activities that all the kids would enjoy.  This was one of those activities.  We filled clear cups half way with vinegar and each child got to choose what color their vinegar was going to be.  They then took turns putting a spoonful of baking soda into their cup.  You would think that after the first cup their amazement would cease, but each spoonful there were "oohs" and "aahhs".  Next time I think I will have a few more cups with just water in them and have them try to guess whether or not there was going to be an "eruption" before they put the baking soda in.

The kids enjoyed watching the colors combine after falling over the edge of the cups.
