These fizzing bottle boats may not break any speed records but are fun to make and play with. Older kids can enjoy learning about simple chemical reactions and forces.
Time: 20 minutes
Age: Any Age
We used some bright pink and colourful jelly bean sticky plastic
You can make a quick funnel by curling a sheet of paper into a cone shape
How does it work?
When water is added to the bottle, the alkaline bicarbonate of soda reacts with the citric acid forming sodium citrate, water and carbon dioxide. The carbon dioxide gas produced escapes through the drinking straw and bubbles through the pool water. The boat is propelled in the opposite direction.
