Cool science experiments for children—this is definitely one of our favorite cool and easy science experiments! The Quirkles creators and KOLR 10 demonstrate the concept of geysers by combining Mentos and Diet Coke. These activities are great if you are looking for fun science projects for kids and they are sure to be entertaining for all.

How to make your own Mentos tube:
STEP 1: Create a launcher tube by rolling the sheet of paper or cardstock into a tube. Make sure the tube is a little bigger than the diameter of the Mentos candy. Use the tape to hold the paper in place.
STEP 2: Open the 2-liter bottle of soda, place the soda on the ground, and put an index card over the opening.
STEP 3: Load the candy into your launcher tube.
STEP 4: Place the launcher tube directly above the opening of the 2-liter bottle of soda. Keep the index card between the bottle and your launcher tube.
STEP 5: Quickly remove the index card allowing the Mentos to fall
