To Stir A Witch’s Brew

Every week needs a science project.  What is better for Witch Week than a foaming brew?  This particular experiment is a “magical” twist on the homemade volcano project.

You will need:

  • Baking Soda
  • Glitter
  • Dish soap
  • Vinegar
  • glass jar
  • Food coloring
  • Tray, cookie sheet or something to catch the ooze

To set up place your jar on the cookie sheet and fill halfway with vinegar.  Add a few drops of food coloring, glitter, and mix in a big squirt of dish soap.  Now, add a teaspoon of baking soda and say your magical incantation while waving your wand (or hands) over your jar.  Step back and watch the reaction.


We had a lot of fun with this one.  Thank you to Steve Spangler Science for the experiment.
