A carved pumpkin, some baking soda, vinegar, food coloring, and a little dishwashing liquid makes your everyday jack-o-lantern now ooze deliciously gross stuff from its mouth, nose, and eyes. It’s also the perfect opportunity to discuss chemical reactions and how the baking soda and vinegar combine to create something altogether different: carbon dioxide.

This month we also demonstrate how acetone will “melt” a plastic (Styrofoam®) skeleton.

Materials:
Pumpkin
Baking soda
Vinegar
Food coloring
Dishwashing liquid
Wooden craft stick
Foil pan
