Preschool science … Fizzy lemons

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 –

  • Lemon
  • Bicarb
  • Food colouring ( optional)

Method

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!
