Science Experiment: Baking Soda and Vinegar

Here are a couple twists on an old favorite science experiment. We did the experiment of mixing baking soda and vinegar to make a small explosion. Then, Bubs got curious. Would the reaction be powerful enough to fill up a balloon? You can see in the picture what he thought of that...

Then we tested to see if we could get a toy car to move, powered by a baking soda and vinegar rocket. We didn't get it to work, but we're still working on it. That's what science is all about, right? Making predictions and testing them out. We tried a smaller car. That didn't help. Next we will try making a smaller opening for the reaction to go through.

What simple science experiments have been hits at your house?
