Kidzapp N/A Kidzapp

Turn off the fire in the candles by making carbon dioxide (co2) with vinegar and baking soda to later put it in a glass. It's like magic!


Tall Drinking glass or 16 oz plastic cup
Short Drinking glass or 9 oz plastic cup
Tea Light
Matches or Lighter

--STEP 1--

Place tea lights in the short drinking glass

--STEP 2--

Using a long match or safety lighter, light the tea lights while leaving them in the glass

--STEP 3--

In the tall glass, pour 1/2 cup vinegar

--STEP 4--

Slowly sprinkle 1/2 tsp of baking soda into the tall glass containing the vinegar. You can dump it all in at once, but be ready for a big eruption!

--STEP 5--

Let the reaction slow down until the foam has disappeared.

--STEP 6--

Slowly tilt the tall glass on it’s side over the tea light as if you were pouring the air over it.

--STEP 7--

If the flame doesn’t go out on your first try, pour another scoop of baking soda into the vinegar and repeat steps 5 & 6
