My kids love exploring science with baking soda and vinegar.
We have found so many ways to play with these simple ingredients, too!  Today, we tried removing the core from a few apples to make apple volcanoes!

Last year we made erupting pumpkins, and my kids have been intrigued to make other things erupt ever since.  So, we hallowed out a few apples and tried our hand at making erupting apple volcanoes.  Read on for the easy tutorial.

APPLE VOLCANOES ACTIVITY FOR KIDS

Materials:
  Optional additions

The Apple Experiment:

  • My girls began by mixing and concocting the ingredients.  
  • First, they mixed a bit of the pie spice into the baking soda to give us apple scented baking soda.  We used roughly 1/2 cup of baking soda per eruption
  • Then, they mixed a few drops of food coloring into the vinegar, alternating between "red" apple and "green" apple for each eruption.

  • Then, they added a bit of baking soda to the cored apples.

Both girls thought the eruptions were so fun!
They had an absolute blast  experimenting.  

They made the apples erupt over and over again and then moved to making bubbling eruptions in the mixing cups.
