How to Make a Bubbling Halloween Potion on the Double Double!

What you need:

Baking soda
White vinegar
Washing up liquid
Green food colouring
Mini plastic cauldrons

How to make your magic potion:

1. Fill the cauldrons with baking soda and add a few drops of green food colouring.

2. Pour white vinegar into a jug and prepare for bubbling! TIP: If you are going to do this indoors, place the cauldrons on a baking tray to catch any overflowing potion.

3. Follow these instructions for each cauldron, one at a time: Pour the vinegar into the cauldron. Add one (tiny) squirt of washing up liquid, give the mixture a quick swish-swish – the handle of a spoon works fine – and watch as it immediately begins to fizz and bubble over. (Science rules.)

Post activity, the remaining green ‘stew’ makes the perfect prop for a Halloween shindig. Creeptastic, no?
