Have you ever seen the baking soda and vinegar reaction? Add it to your learning colors or science experiments for kids to do list! The baking soda and vinegar experiment is simple to put together and is absolute FUN!
Baking Soda and Vinegar Reaction
We’ve done the volcano experiment before but this time… we focused on learning colors. We worked on color mixing, experimentation and more. This was a very fun science experiment for kids!

Baking Soda And Vinegar Experiment
You can watch our video tutorial here.. seeing it in action captures so much more of the essence and fun of this activity.
Begin by adding in a drop of food coloring into your cups. I chose to use different colors.
I chose to use the colors red, blue, purple, yellow and pink. You could also theme the colors you choose according to a specific holiday.
I also like to use trays under activities like this.. like pouring activities because then, I don’t stress about the kids dropping anything on the floor. It generally contains all the mess. I also sometimes do these activities on our sensory table.
When ready, add in your vinegar.
You can choose to do this part slowly or fast. I wanted there to be a color explosion so we poured the vinegar in really fast. Next time, I will probably do it super slow. You can also use much smaller cups/containers or even empty ice cube trays so that you don’t waste any vinegar.
As you add in the vinegar, the color erupts.
My children then proceeded to mix colors. They used some tools as well as just pouring the glasses into each other to create fun new colors.
This activity was a blast. Have you tried the baking soda and vinegar reaction experiment?
