Preschool Science Experiment Surprise Color Fizz!

Share on Pinterest

My children just love a preschool science experiment! Fizzing things right now is the coolest thing ever to them and they just can’t get enough and I can’t set them up fast enough!

For this preschool science experiment I decided to combine the thrill of fizzing with a surprise of color discovery!

Preschool Science Experiment Surprise Color Fizz!

Supplies for Preschool Science Experiment:

I used 6 plastic shot glasses and positioned them in a tray with high sides. Scoop 1 tablespoon of baking soda into the the cups then add 4 drops of food coloring in the middle of the cup.

Scoop a 2nd tablespoon of baking soda on top of the food coloring. Do NOT mix.

Fill up your squeeze bottle with vinegar.vinegar preschool science

Let the kids start squirting the vinegar into the baking soda!

We played guess what color and then tried to get the one color to bubble faster than the others.preschool reaction science

We also tried to get all the colors bubbling at the same time. This was a great practice to estimate how much vinegar we needed for reactions.fizzing science experiment

The colors then fizzed into each other and looked just so pretty!colorful science for preschoolers

At this point you can get a teaspoon out to see if mixing would result in more fizz as the children get the last of the baking soda to react to the vinegar.fizzing experiment for preschool

Another lesson in preschool science is why is it not fizzing anymore? All the baking soda has mixed with the vinegar.preschool science experiment fun

My kids really enjoyed this preschool science experiment and I think it is one we will do again at some point.

  1. If you’re looking to buy bigger quantities of bicarb, try the Chinese Supermarkets e.g. Wing Yip or Chi Yip in Manchester. They sell 5Kg bags quite cheaply

  2. Looks like fun! As a chemistry teacher could I suggest one change to the post? At the end, the fizzing hasn’t stopped b/c it’s all mixed, it’s because it has all reacted and there’s no baking soda left. It’s never too early to introduce terms like ‘reaction’ and concepts like chemical change. There’s no more baking soda or vinegar anymore, they’ve reacted to make new different substances- the ‘fizz’ is carbon dioxide, the same thing we breathe out!
    Mixing, like mixing paints or dissolving sugar, is a physical change because you still have paint, or sugar and water (still tastes sweet). This chemical reaction produced new things that are completely different!
