Magic Potion

What you need:

• 2 Tbsp Water
• 1 Tbsp Baking soda
• 2 Tbsp Vinegar

Directions:

1. Place a bowl or cup on a pan or tray (or you’ll get potion all over the place!)
2. Fill the bowl with 2 tablespoons of water and stir in a tablespoon of baking soda until it dissolves.
3. Measure 2 tablespoons of vinegar into a separate cup.
4. Pour the vinegar, all at once into the water/baking soda mixture and watch your potion bubble up!

WHY’D THAT HAPPEN?? The bubbles that are created are filled with carbon dioxide. The carbon dioxide is a gas that forms when the vinegar (an acid) reacts with the baking soda (a base). For all you bakers out there, this is also what makes cakes and quick breads (the no yeast kind) get all nice and fluffy.
