We had so much fun with just these two ingredients this morning ….
Hamish and I decided to start the week with an easy science experiment and we made some fizzing lemons.
The bicarb, which is the base, mixes with the lemon, which is a acid, it starts a bubbling reaction, which is carbon dioxide that is fun to watch.
To make your own:
You need –
- Food colouring ( optional)
Cut your lemon in half.
( I poked mine with a knife and squeezed it a bit so the lemon juice was quite oozy)
If you are using food colouring add a drop or two to the lemon.
Put 2 or 3 spoons of bicarb onto the lemon.
It should start to react straight away.
Just like magic!
