The kids are going to love this Fizzy St. Patrick’s Day Science activity! It’s a fun sensory activity with a little bit of messy play, too! 

Are you familiar with the baking soda and vinegar reaction? It’s so simple, but it truly never gets old. I love that it’s so versatile and can be a great experiment for all times of the year. 

E is 5, we’ve been doing activities like these since she was only 2 years old, and she still has a blast every time. Now that N at 19 months is big enough to join in, it’s twice as much fun as a sibling activity.

This time, we did some simple Fizzy St. Patrick’s Day Science with baking soda, yellow and green vinegar in squeeze bottles, and additional St. Patrick’s Day themed items.

Here’s our list of Fizzy Experiments Your Kids Will Love.

N did a little squeezing, too, but he was more interested in the gold coins. {He already knew about them from the Valentine’s Treasure Dig he did a couple of weeks ago, but this time, he spent a lot more time exploring them, putting them into the shot glasses, and taking them out again.}
