You know something funny? This summer we did the classic pop rocks and soda experiment for the boys mad science birthday party and afterwards Legoman (9) came up with this really fun twist. Although that was months before Halloween, he had a great idea to turn this into a spooky experiment and I was so proud of him for coming up with it.


Honestly, I am not sure I ever would have thought of doing this. Gotta love kids!

Halloween Pop Rocks and Soda Experiment

INSTRUCTIONS


Setting up this “experiment” is super simple. I want to clarify that this is more of a demonstration since it lacks variables and tests. That doesn’t stop it from being super cool and an awesome way to demonstrate the expansion of air due to a chemical reaction.


Pop Rocks and soda Experiment for Halloween

Before we got started, we drew faces on our latex gloves with sharpie markers. If your child is younger, this might be difficult and you might need to help them hold the glove while they draw.

To make things easier, we placed the glove into a small container before we poured the pop rocks in. This not only made it easier to pour, but made the rubber band step so much easier.


Step One: Pour 1 bag of pop rocks into you decorated glove.


Step Two: While squeezing the bottom of the glove, attach the glove to the soda bottle with a rubber band (remember we kept the glove in a small container to make it easier to pull through the rubber band.


Be sure not to tip the glove over during this step.


Step Three: Pull the glove up right so that the pop rocks dump into the soda.



Within seconds the glove will expand and you will be left with the most awesome little halloween treat.

Steve Spangler is known for his wonderful explanations of science activities. I would recommend clicking over to read the background to this simple experiment, but for now, Legoman would like to explain things too.
