This Halloween, get ready for a fun twist on a traditional science experiment! Young scientists will love this hands-on, pumpkin-themed experiment which incorporates creativity and chemistry.

To make Fizzy  Pumpkins, you'll need  distilled white vinegar,  baking soda, food  coloring (orange or red  and yellow to make  orange), a pumpkin  mold, and a tray to  contain any mess.

Step 1: In a small bowl, mix ½  cup baking soda and 3  tablespoons of water to  create a paste.

Step 2: Add a few drops of  food coloring to the paste and  stir well to evenly spread the  color.

Step 3: Take the pumpkin mold and fill one crevice  with the paste, making  sure to get it into every  nook and cranny.

Step 4: Carefully turn the  mold over to remove the  pumpkin and place it in a  plastic cup.

Step 5: Fill a small cup with  vinegar and pour it into the  pumpkin cup to watch the  reaction.

So, this Halloween,  get ready for some  fizzy fun with Fizzy  Pumpkins!
