Science is where my heart is, so when the girls get inspired to learn more or do more, yes, that!
Fortunately, it doesn’t take a long time and they have a lot of fun, so it’s easy to do. Since checking out Animal Jam*, and watching Dr. Brady Barr do an experiment with acids and bases, they wanted to try it out.
But, my oldest wanted to improve on it. You see, in the video we watched, they use lemon juice and have to move very quickly to get the balloon on the bottle once the lemon juice is added to the baking soda. And, their balloon barely blows up.
She wanted more!
So, of course, we had to try it her way, and it was a huge success.
Check out the video to see how we did it and what it looked like on our very first run through!
I’ll give you a hint, it’s just just about the “ingredients!”
*Also, Animal Jam is free! So, you can get more science ideas, learn about animals, print out sheets and more.
