Kids Frugal Fun: Watch Soda Fly with Mentos?

We stopped by our friend Katie’s house, from Cincinnati Cents, the other day and her kids told our girls that they were going to blow up soda, did they wanna help! The kids had seen that you can take mentos and add them to diet soda and they will make a big explosion! So we tried it!

We began peeling back just the paper on the mentos, leaving the foil on.

imageThen place the foil wrapped mentos in the soda.

image

It will begin to make a large explosion.

image

Then watch the soda fly!!

image

We had so much fun making soda fly and even made a batch of flubber, which I will share later! What fun things are you doing this summer with the kiddos?
