It’s time to bust your boredom self-quarantine blues with this fun science experiment that you and your kids will definitely get a kick out of. Using a few household products, you can make foaming geysers of fun and keep your kiddos entertained while learning a little science, too. It’s important to note that gloves and goggles should be worn if you use 6% hydrogen peroxide to avoid possible skin irritation.
What You’ll Need:
Hiland Dairy milk containers (I used 16 oz. containers)
½ cup of 3% or 6% hydrogen peroxide
1 tablespoon of dry yeast
3 tablespoons of warm water
Liquid dish soap
Tray or tub
What To Do:
Be sure the milk containers have been properly cleaned with warm, soapy water; labels removed and completely dried.
Feel free to decorate the bottles to resemble toothpaste tubes and place each bottle on a tray or in a tub for easy cleanup.
Pour the hydrogen peroxide (I used a 6% solution) into one of the milk bottles. Add a big squirt of dish soap into the same bottle and gently swirl to mix. Repeat to fill the remaining bottles.
Add a few drops of food coloring into the hydrogen peroxide mixture and gently swirl to mix.
In a separate container or measuring cup, mix the yeast and warm water for approximately 30 seconds.
Pour the yeast mixture into the milk bottle, quickly step back and watch the oozing, colorful reaction.
Diva’s Tip: To make stripes, drop food coloring along the inside rim of the bottle’s mouth and let it drip down the inside of the bottle but do not mix.
