Since it is “Halloween-time,” as J calls it, we made spooky potions. Spooky potions are so fun, and so easy! All you need is Baking Soda and Vinegar (just plain, white vinegar). We added some neon food colorings to make it Halloweeney.
2. Add a few drops of whatever food coloring you want into the baking soda.
3. Pour in the vinegar. It will fizz and foam. I found the squeeze bottles at Walmart, and I like them because it contains the mess. But, you can just pour from a cup or whatever pleases your little scientist!
We had so much fun, we did it again!
A few ways to modify:
To Simplify: Do it all yourself in front of your scientist.
To Extend: Make other spooky potions, but mix your own colors. Talk about what primary colors you can mix to get “spooky” new colors. We mixed yellow and red to get orange.
