Pumpkin Activities

Pumpkin Science

You can use real pumpkins and cut open top and scoop out inside, but I prefer to skip the taking out all the guts part and use an artificial fake pumpkin from target or Johann Fabrics. Carefully use your knife to cut out a silly, spooky, or funny face. You can use any size pumpkin, just remember the bigger the pumpkin the more material you will need to get the huge WOW effect.

Now fill the inside of the pumpkin about halfway with baking soda. Add a few drops of dish soap to the baking soda and food coloring if you’d like. Place the mini pumpkin on a tray or plate to catch the lava mess. Pour vinegar into¬† the mini pumpkin.

You can keep adding vinegar until the chemical reaction of the acid and base (baking soda and vinegar) is done. Then you can always start it all over with a new color! My kids wanted to do this again and again. And it’s so simple because it uses common household items so I was happy to keep their intrest in science keep going!

Pumpkin Experiments

Baking Soda and Vinegar Experiment

These common kitchen ingredients combine in this vinegar and baking soda experiment to form a chemical reaction where carbon dioxide is produced. The CO2 gas pushes the substance out as it takes up more room. The dish soap creates bubbles and allows it to ooze and flow more. I love making science FUN!
