Science experiments are so much fun especially when they are specifically tailored for New Years, yay!
New Years is coming soon and we are excited to bring forth an easy and simple stem activity that was is so much fun and very, very easy as well!
If you are having a little party with friends and/or family here is an easy science experiment party activity you can try for some learning fun!
Science experiments for kids party around New Years are really fun because I am always looking for a fun activity I can try around New Years, how about you?

Let’s get into how easy this simple glitter kids set up is to put together (and you don’t really even need glitter because it is not necessary at all.)
Colorful Beads (in replacement of glitter and optional, supervision advised)
I used a tray we purchased at Michaels stores but here is an alternative to the one we use which is amazing because it will hold all of the liquid that falls from the reaction. 😀
So, how exactly did we put together this simple science experiment for kids?
Fun Kids Science Experiment
These are the steps I took to put together this simple and very easy science experiment for kids:
Set out small containers with ⅓ of baking soda.
Add different colored beads into the containers filled with baking soda (this is optional and not necessary.)
Then, in a set of secondary plastic containers insert vinegar and a few drops of liquid washable watercolors making sure there is a different color within each.
Use a water dropper to bring in the vinegar and drop onto the containers with baking soda within them.
What happens? A reaction!
It isn’t a very big one but a reaction does occur and it is so much fun!
Kids and glitter is always a fun mix.
We love using glitter whether biodegradable (preferably) or not in our arts and crafts.
This time around we skipped the glitter and went for the colorful beads for New Years and it was nice to see them move up when the reaction occurred.
Kitchen Science Experiments for Preschoolers
We like to learn about colors in this fun way with this simple experiment for kids.
What other fun kitchen science experiments have you tried before?
Have you tried the baking soda and vinegar experiment before?
How did it go for you?
We have tried this before in muffin tins to decode different colors and talked about each colors that would appear once the vinegar coincided with the baking soda.
I hope you enjoy and if you try it out, share below your experience and what you did differently so maybe we can try it out too!
