09 – Make a Bomb in a Bag

The ‘bomb’ referred to in this activity harnesses the awesome power of cider vinegar and baking soda. The fun of it was containing it within just the right amount of space to cause some cool results.

The goal was to keep the packet of base out of the pool of acid until you ‘set off your bomb’. The boys had a good time redesigning their ‘bombs’ and coming up with additional ideas.

Seems like I found the explosions pretty entertaining 😉

Dangerous? Apparently, from the sounds of the videos, I was scared!


  1. TOTALLY going to do this TOMORROW! Oh – this looks like fun! Thanks for the post – and the reminder to video it!
