Halloween Science: Erupting Pumpkin!

Sometimes the simplest Halloween activities for kids turn out to be the most fun! All you need for this activity is a carved pumpkin, some baking soda, and vinegar. Food colouring is optional but highly recommended as it adds to the fun Science!
Fill up the pumpkin with about 4-6 tablespoons of baking soda and a few drops of food colouring.
Then pour the vinegar in until it foam and you will see the eruptions begin!
Easy isn't it? To some this may look a little gross, but it is a Halloween activity after all ;) Try to experiment with smaller pumpkins to see if you can get the eruptions to come out of the entire pumpkin face. Enjoy it!
