Rainbow Baking Soda Science Experiment at Home

by - February 16, 2021

When I was growing up, I had the typical childhood of seeing my mom cook in the kitchen. Whether that may be here in Manila or Taiwan, you would always find her in the kitchen cooking or baking something. That became a huge perk for me because I grew up watching her closely and got to know how to cook or bake at a young age and I even got the extra knowledge of the best ingredients to use when I make certain food. 

Speaking of ingredients, one of the brands I grew up seeing my mom use and has trusted forever is Arm & Hammer. She would use this for baking a lot and as I got older, I discovered that it's actually not just good for baking but also has so many other uses! :) 

Since we're stuck at home with the kids 24/7 now and sometimes the days can get too routinely for them. I try to come up with ways to brighten up their day with fun activities. Today, Asher and I worked on a cool Pinterest activity we found called Rainbow Baking Soda Science Experiment

Most of the stuff that we needed for this experiment we fortunately had at home already, so it was the best one for us to recreate. But in case you don't have some of them, you can easily just grab them at the supermarket. :)

Materials you'll need:

Baking Soda
Food Coloring
Small cups / containers

Step 1: fill 3/4 of the container with Baking Soda
Step 2: drop a bit of food coloring on each cup and mix very well 

Step 3: the fun part! You can now start adding some vinegar on each of your containers! :)

Asher really enjoyed this activity because it's his first time to see how baking soda + vinegar works when mixed together. :) Plus, it's even more fun for kids because it's rainbow colored!

You can also check the video version of this experiment on my Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/CLWVp9UBRo4/

Not only is this a fun experiment to do, but it also shows our kids how 

So, that's one of the ways that you can make use of baking soda without it actually going on your food! It's a really versatile and inexpensive ingredient. :) Some of the other uses can be:

1. Stain removal
2. Cleaning solution in your kitchen 
3. Removes pesticides/dirt from fresh fruits or veggies
4. Bathroom cleaner 
5. Personal care: relieves skin irritation, deodorant, etc.
