VOLCANOES
The Science The reaction of baking soda and vinegar is deceptively simple: what appears to be one reaction is actually two, happening in quick succession. What happens is this: the acetic acid (that's what makes vinegar sour) reacts with sodium bicarbonate (a compound that's in baking soda) to form carbonic acid. It's really a double replacement reaction. Carbonic acid is unstable, and it immediately falls apart into carbon dioxide and water (it's a decomposition reaction). The bubbles you see from the reaction come from the carbon dioxide escaping the solution that is left. Carbon dioxide is heavier than air, so, it flows almost like water when it overflows the container. It is a gas that you exhale (though in small amounts), because it is a product of the reactions that keeps your body going. What's left is a dilute solution of sodium acetate in water.

The Experiment Materials:
- Baking Soda - White Vinegar - Cups, Muffin Tin, Bowls or other containers - Food Coloring (optional)

Directions: - Pour a moderate pile of baking soda into each of your containers. - Add a few drops of food coloring, if desired. - Add vinegar to the piles of baking soda. The more vinegar you add, the bigger the reaction.

IVORY SOAP EXPLOSION
The ScienceTwo processes occur when you microwave the soap. First, you are heating the soap, which softens it. Second, you are heating the air and water trapped inside the soap, causing the water to vaporize and the air to expand. The expanding gases push on the softened soap, causing it to expand and become a foam. Popping popcorn works in much the same way. When you microwave Ivory™, the appearance of the soap is changed, but no chemical reaction occurs. This is an example of a physical change. It also demonstrates Charles' Law, which states the volume of a gas increases with its temperature. The microwaves impart energy into the soap, water, and air molecules, causing them to move faster and further away from each other. The result is that the soap puffs up. Other brands of soap don't contain as much whipped air and simply melt in the microwave.

The Experiment Materials: - Bar of Ivory Brand Soap - Paper Plate or Paper Towel - Microwave Directions: - Cut your bar of Ivory soap into quarters. - Place one quarter on the paper plate or paper towel. - Place the plate or towel in the microwave. - Set the microwave for two minutes. Depending on the power of your microwave the reaction will complete between 90 and 180 seconds.

BALLOON BLOW UP
The Science Basically, mixing vinegar and baking soda is a simple acid + base reaction. The chemicals in the bottle rearranged themselves in the reaction, and they made carbon dioxide, which is the gas that filled up the balloon and there are actually three products of the reaction – water, carbon dioxide, and sodium acetate (a salt). Because the balloon is filled with CO2, it falls faster than a normal balloon because it is more dense than room air (which is mostly nitrogen with oxygen and carbon dioxide). We tied off the balloon from our reaction, and then compared it with a balloon that we blew up to the same size, and it was interesting to see the difference!

The Experiment Materials:
- Baking Soda - Vinegar - Funnel - Plastic Bottle - Balloon

Directions:
- Use the funnel to pour approximately 1/4 cup of baking soda into the balloon. Set aside. - Use the funnel to pour approximately 1/4 cup of vinegar into the bottle. - Carefully, slip the mouth of the balloon over the mouth of the bottle. Don't let any baking soda fall into the bottle just yet. - When you have the balloon secure fastened to the bottle, tip the balloon upright and pour the baking soda into the bottle.

BOUNCY BALLS
The Science Bouncing balls were originally made of natural rubber, though now bouncing balls can be made of plastics and other polymers or even treated leather. Once you understand the basic technique, you can alter the recipe for the ball to see how the chemical composition affects the bounciness of the ball, as well as other characteristics. The bouncing ball in this activity is made from a polymer. Polymers are molecules made up of repeating chemical units. Glue contains the polymer polyvinyl acetate (PVA), which cross-links to itself when reacted with borax. This is an experiment using different amount of borax, glue, and cornstarch. The more cornstarch you add, the ball will expand. The more glue you add, the slimier the ball gets. The more borax you add, the less sticky the ball gets.

The Experiment Materials:
- borax (found in the laundry section of the store) - cornstarch (found in the baking section of the store) - white glue (e.g., Elmer's glue - makes an opaque ball) or blue or clear school glue (makes a translucent ball) - warm water - food coloring (optional) - measuring spoons - spoon or craft stick to stir the mixture - 2 small plastic cups or other containers for mixing - marking pen - watch with a second hand - metric ruler - zip-lock plastic baggie

Directions:
-Label one cup 'Borax Solution' and the other cup 'Ball Mixture'. - Pour 2 tablespoons warm water and 1/2 teaspoon borax powder into the cup labeled 'Borax Solution'. Stir the mixture to dissolve the borax. - Add food coloring, if desired. - Pour 1 tablespoon of glue into the cup labeled 'Ball Mixture'. - Add 1/2 teaspoon of the borax solution you just made and 1 tablespoon of cornstarch. Do not stir. - Allow the ingredients to interact on their own for 10-15 seconds and then stir them together to fully mix. - Once the mixture becomes impossible to stir, take it out of the cup and start molding the ball with your hands. - The ball will start out sticky and messy, but will solidify as you knead it. - Once the ball is less sticky, go ahead and bounce it! - You can store your plastic ball in a sealed ziploc bag when you are finished playing with it.

- Don't eat the materials used to make the ball or the ball itself. Wash your work area, utensils, and hands when you have completed this activity.

LAVA LAMPS
The Science oil and water do not mix. The molecules of water do not like to mix with the molecules of oil. Even if you try to shake up the bottle, the oil breaks up into small little drops, but the oil doesn’t mix with the water. Also, food coloring only mixes with water. It does not color the oil. When you pour the water into the bottle with the oil, the water sinks to the bottom and the oil floats to the top. This is the same as when oil from a ship spills in the ocean. The oil floats on top of the water. Oil floats on the surface because water is heavier than oil. Scientists say that the water is more dense than the oil. Here’s the surprising part... The Alka-Seltzer tablet reacts with the water to make tiny bubbles of carbon dioxide gas. These bubbles attach themselves to the blobs of colored water and cause them to float to the surface. When the bubbles pop, the color blobs sink back to the bottom of the bottle.

The Experiment Materials:
- Clean, plastic soda bottle or glass, jar - Vegetable oil (the cheaper the better) - Food coloring - Alka-Seltzer tablet or Fizzy Tablets - Flashlight - Water

Directions:
Fill the bottle 3/4 full with vegetable oil. Fill the rest of the bottle with water (almost to the top but not overflowing). Add about 10 drops of food coloring. Be sure to make the water fairly dark in color. Notice that the food coloring only colors the water and not the oil. Hmmm...

Divide the Alka-Seltzer tablet into 8 pieces. Drop one of the tiny pieces of Alka-Seltzer into the oil and water mixture. Watch what happens. When the bubbling stops, add another chunk of Alka-Seltzer. It’s just like a lava lamp! If you want to make it even more "lave-like," put your bottle on a flashlight and turn the room lights off. When you have used up all of the Alka-Seltzer and the bubbling has completely stopped, screw on the soda bottle cap. Tip the bottle back and forth and watch a wave appear. The tiny droplets of liquid join together to make one big lava-like blob.

FLUBBER
The Science PVA glue is made up of PVA - poly vinyl alcohol molecules, in water. These are very long molecules which will tangle up with each other a bit when you stir the glue, making it quite thick and viscous, but there is nothing to stop it from flowing slowly. PVA glue is made up of long molecules. If you stretch the PVA glue the molecules can move past one another slowly so it flows. The borax will form bonds to PVA molecules, and as each borax molecule can bond with more than one PVA molecule, it acts to stick them together. If there is just a little borax this will effectively make the PVA molecules longer, and it will go much more slimey. But if you add enough Borax it will form a great big interconnected network which will distort if you pull on it but will then wriggle back to its original shape, Molecular vibrations, a result of it being warm, cause each molecule it to become less straight. This means that it is stretchy like rubber and will bounce. The borax crosslinks different PVA molecules together. This means that when you stretch the tangled network parts of the PVA molecules straighten out. Then when your let go they wriggle to become shorter again. Why does the flubber flow very slowly? The bonds between the borax and PVA are not very strong so occasionally they break and reform somewhere else. Each time this happens while the flubber is stretched it will flow slightly, and so it flows very slowly.

The Experiment Materials:
- 1 ½ cups warm water - 2 cups Elmer’s Glue - Food coloring - 3 tsp. Borax - 1 cup Warm Water - 2 cups

Directions: - Mix 1 ½ cups warm water, 2 cups Elmer’s Glue and Food coloring in a cup. - Mix 3 tsp. Borax and 1 cup Warm Water in another cup. - Make sure both are mixed well. - Pour mixture 1 into mixture 2. - There is no need to stir the mixture, but you can if you want because it is the chemical reaction that actually makes the flubber. When it is in a glob work it for 2-3 minutes. Initially it feels wet but it eventually dries up to the final product. ** Add some Glow-in-the-Dark paint to the flubber and take it into a dark to play! **

EXPLODING BAGS
The Science The baking soda and the vinegar eventually mix (the tissue buys you some time to zip the bag shut) When they do mix, you create an ACID-BASE reaction and the two chemicals work together to create a gas, (carbon dioxide - the stuff we breathe out) well it turns out gasses need a lot of room and the carbon dioxide starts to fill the bag, and keeps filling the bag until the bag can no longer hold it any more and, POP!

The Experiment Materials:
- One small (sandwich size) zip-lock bag - freezer bags work best. - Baking soda - Warm water - Vinegar - Measuring cup - A tissue

Directions:
- Go outside - or at least do this in the kitchen sink. - Put 1/4 cup of pretty warm water into the bag. - Add 1/2 cup of vinegar to the water in the bag. - Put 3 teaspoons of baking soda into the middle of the tissue - Wrap the the baking soda up in the tissue by folding the tissue around it. - You will have to work fast now - partially zip the bag closed but leave enough space to add the baking soda packet. Put the tissue with the baking soda into the bag and quickly zip the bag completely closed. - Put the bag in the sink or down on the ground (outside) and step back. The bag will start to expand, and expand, and if all goes well...POP!

SHINY PENNIES
The Science Vinegar is an acid, and the acid in the vinegar reacts with the salt to remove what chemists call copper oxide which was making your pennies dull. You're not done yet, though, let's try another experiment: Add more pennies to the bowl for 10 seconds, but this time , don't rinse them off. Place them on a paper towel to dry off. In time the pennies will turn greenish-blue as a chemical called malachite forms on your pennies. But wait, you're still not done yet. Place one or two nuts and bolts in the vinegar and watch - they may become COPPER in color! The vinegar removed some of the copper from the pennies, if there is enough copper in the vinegar, the copper will become attracted by to the metal in the nuts and bolts and they will take on a new copper color.

The Experiment Materials:
- A few old (not shiny) pennies - 1/4 cup white vinegar - 1 teaspoon salt - Non-metal bowl - Paper towels

Directions:
- Pour the vinegar into the bowl and add the salt - stir it up. - Put about 5 pennies into the bowl and count to 10 slowly. - Take out the pennies and rinse them out in some water. Admire their shininess!

GLOW BOTTLES STARS IN A BOTTLE
Materials:
- Clean Glass Bottle - Glow sticks - Scissors - Glow-in-the-Dark Paint (optional) - Paint Brush Directions: - Break a glow stick - Cut one end off of a glow stick with scissors. - Shake the glowy liquid into the bottle. The more spatters, the better. - (Optional) Dip the paint brush into the glow-in-the-dark paint. Place the brush inside the mouth of the bottle and tap firmly, but gently against the sides of the mouth of the jar so the paint splatters onto the sides of the bottle. The glow-in-the-dark paint will give your glow bottle more life than just the glow stick, which will stop glowing in 4-6 hours. With the paint you will get a rechargeable glow that will last until the paint chips off the bottle.

BALLOON TERRARIUM
Materials:
Here’s what you’ll need: a clear or semi-transparent balloon (I got ours at Party City for $0.19 each), potting soil, seeds of some kind (we used grass seed because we already had some here at home), a funnel, and water.

Directions:
- Insert the funnel into the balloon. - Let your little one pour the dirt into the funnel. - If you want, add a little dinosaur in there too! - Add water. This is where we went wrong. We just let it barely dribble. I would suggest adding about 1/4 cup water. - Blow up the balloon. We wanted Big Brother to feel like he was contributing… - Tie it off and place it in a sunny spot. The orange thing in there is our plastic dinosaur - Watch it grow (that is…if you put enough water in it to begin with). If you have older children in your home, you can talk about the water cycle. And the best part is…you don’t have to remember to water it!
