Last Summer we did a lot of experiments with fizzy stuff. Things like baking soda, antacid tablets, yeast and fizzy drink tabs.We didn't always get a chance to blog about it.
This is one of my favorites. We tried all afternoon to get a balloon to self inflate and explode, using Nuun drink tablets and water.
The water and the tablets reacted so we were sure it should work but it always fizzed out before the balloon inflated all the way. Dad finally came up with the idea to add water to the tablets instead of the other way around and the reaction was humungous. It was so cool when the balloon popped.
Later this summer we are going to try this again with vinegar and baking soda. I can't wait. I love messy experiments.
