Sandwich Baggie Bang

In an effort to entertain Trouble, who is out of school for Winter vacation, I decided to do a little science experiment with him. Trouble, like most 8 year old boys, loves it when things explode. So we decided to experiment with a little variation of the volcano we made last spring.

What you need:
  • ziplock sandwich baggie (with no holes)
  • paper towel
  • 2 tablespoons baking soda
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1/4 cup warm water
What you do:
WARNING This should be done outside. (unless you want a baggie full of vinegar and baking soda to explode in the house)

Place baking soda in the middle of the paper towel and fold it up.

Pour the vinegar and water into the sandwich baggie.

Quickly place the paper towel in the baggie and zip that baby up. Give the baggie a little shake.

Put the baggie on the ground and stand back.
before bang
after bang
The baking soda & vinegar reaction produces carbon dioxide which fills and pops the baggie. Most importantly... it makes your kid happy!
