Fun with Kitchen Science

Another day, another exciting adventure, courtesy of the Betta Living Kids in the Kitchen box of goodies - we've been amazed at just how much fun we've had with equipment that costs just a couple of quid. After kitting himself out in his incredibly tall chef's hat, Pierre went to pick something and came back with a bottle of vinegar and a tub of bicarbonate of soda. I knew what this one would be but the kids had no idea !

I told Juliette to put some bicarb in the bottom of a tall beaker and carefully pour on some vinegar, then get ready for the volcano effect.

She then added more and more to see if we could make it overflow - we almost succeeded !

Once it had settled down, the resulting vinegar/bicarb mess was left out on the table because they wanted to pretend it was a glass of coke when Madhouse Daddy came home for lunch ! Luckily, he wasn't fooled - the smell was a bit of a giveaway !

To find out more about the other activities, designed by Betta Living to help you have fun on a budget during the holidays, check out my blogpost about the Kids In The Kitchen campaign here.
