  • Set this aside.
  • Line a shallow dish or container with baking soda.  Add a few candy canes if desired.

I added a few plastic candy canes, but real ones would be even more fun and react to the fizzing science.
  • Give kids pipettes, and they will have a blast making exploring magical candy cane science!
