These have been on my to do list ever since I saw them over on Meet the Dubiens! The question that kept coming to my mind was “how the heck is this going to work?” And when that question goes through my mind… I have to figure it out. So 14 months later… here we are.
I can’t even begin to tell you how cool these are! And how much my kids loved them. Who am I kidding… I was pretty fascinated by them as well! And so easy!
You will need:
*clear plastic bottles
* vegetable oil (or any kind of oil)
* food coloring
* Alka Seltzer
Remove the label from the bottle and fill about 3/4 of the way with oil. Fill the rest of the way with water.
Add about 10 drops of food coloring. The food coloring will stay in tony beads while it travells to the water. It will take a couple of minutes and then penetrate the water and turn it. It’s pretty cool to watch.
Cut up a tablet of Alka Seltzer into about 8 pieces.
Add one piece of Alka Seltzer at a time and watch what it does.
I wish my pictures were better because this was so darn cool!!! You can add as many pieces of Alka Seltzer in as you would like and watch the bubbles. But be careful adding too much at once, it just makes a bubbling whirlpool =o)
I’m so glad we finally made these!!!
I hope you make these too and enjoy them as much as we did!
