Fizzing and foaming pumpkin fakers

We had lots of oranges in the fruit bowl that had been their for a while so I decided to test the new pumpkin carve set and do some Halloween science too.

So we carved a face into an orange.

We added a vitamin C effervescent tablet and then Dylan squirted the orange juice onto it.

This is what happened.

We practised sucking up more juice .

Then we tried the baking soda and vinegar.

Great fun. I thought the orange effervescent tablets would foam more orange but there was just a little fizzing the baking soda was better. We will try orange food coloring next year.
