Diet Coke and Mentos

July 27, 2007 at 10:17 am (Uncategorized)

We have been wanting to do this experiment for a loooong time!  We finally got to do it with our friends in California…It was well worth the wait!

The big boys get things ready…
These 2 have known each other since they were 2 & 3 years old!  What a blessing to hang out with old friends!

The first bottle blows!

And blows!!!!

Getting ready to shoot off another bottle! Can’t you just see how excited everyone is?

My 3 year old has obviously learned when it is time to RUN!!!

Thar she blows!!!

Of course once all the exploding was over we all had to taste it! (It tasted gross in my opinion!  LOL)

The best way to clean up after such a messy experiment is to throw all the kids in the pool!

Of course the dog wants to swim too!

Whew, she made it!

This was VERY fun!  Thanks so much to our wonderful homeschool friends for having a "blast" with us!

    Looks like fun! We saw this at our museum this week and my dd did it in camp today. She got to taste it and just said it was very minty. She wants to try it at home, too. A dip in the pool would be a great way to clean off! Dana,
