Diet Coke and Mentos

Shopping at the BX today I found this

Ever hear about the diet soda and Mentos experiment? Check this out.

Because the kids love experiments so much, I thought I would pick up this little kit (only 3 bucks by the way) and see if it really works. 

You just need a 2 Liter of Diet Coke (use diet because it won't leave a sticky mess behind), some Mentos, and The Geyser Tube.

Set up the bottle on a flat surface so it won't spill over. 

Stand back, pull the red string, and enjoy. 
(I moved the kids farther back, but apparently the wind was blowing in their direction so they got a bit wet)

There isn't much left of the Coke.

The kids thought it was AWESOME!

If you need ideas for the kids' birthday you should check out Be Amazing! Toys. There are tons of experiments to pick from. And because we will be moving a few months after their birthdays its a perfect idea... less toys to take with us, but still TONS of fun!
