These baking soda and vinegar balloons were so much fun! Mix everything together and watch as the reaction creates carbon dioxide and inflates the balloons! As far as science experiments go, this is a pretty simple one.
I love that we had all of the materials needed for it at home already, and that it was quick and easy to put together! And on top of that, it was pretty darn cool to watch the balloon inflate all by itself!
Who doesn’t love blowing up a soggy balloon!? So we were all pretty excited that we could blow up balloons another way, without using our mouths!
- ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda
- White distilled vinegar
- Balloon (12” or larger) 2-liter plastic bottle, empty
- Pour ARM & HAMMER Baking Soda into your balloon, filling the balloon halfway.
- Use the funnel to pour vinegar into the water bottle, filling about ⅓ of the bottle.
- Cover the top of the bottle with the bottom of the balloon.
- When ready, lift the balloon and let the ARM & HAMMER Baking Soda fall into the vinegar.
- Watch as the mixture fizzes, bubbles, and inflates your balloon!
