Puking Pumpkin Science
Add a dash of spooky science to your Halloween decor — with an eerie, oozy chemical concoction you whip up yourself! Put your measuring and color-mixing skills to the test while blending together baking soda, foaming gel, and liquid colors. Pour the mixture into a carved pumpkin from home, add water and citric acid, then sit back as the chemicals react and make your pumpkin “puke”! Barf has never before been such a blast.
Why it’s awesome
Decorate for Halloween with pumpkins and your imagination!
See what happens when citric acid, foaming gel, and baking soda mix!
From the desk of the product designer:
Behind the design
“What do you do when pumpkins are out of season? You get creative! We had to figure out exactly what ingredient amounts we needed to make a massive, messy chemical reaction. But since we couldn't use a real pumpkin for our tests, we used a jack-o'-lantern bucket instead!”
