Let’s get right to exploring this chemical change with baking soda and vinegar. Head to the kitchen, open the cupboard and be prepared to get a little messy. Make sure you have a tray and paper towels available for spills!


This RAINBOW EASTER EGGS activity asks the question:  What happens when you mix baking soda and vinegar?



  • Plastic eggs
  • Egg tray
  • Eyedropper, squeeze bottle, or meat baster
  • Baking soda
  • Vinegar
  • Food coloring




Your kids should easily be able to help you set up this baking soda and vinegar experiment too!


STEP 1:  Set up a tray with an egg carton (clear plastic or styrofoam will work best) and set up your eggs.


STEP 2: Add several drops of food coloring to each egg (this step is optional but very fun for surprise colour eruptions). You can also colour separate containers of vinegar and let the kids mix and match colors.


STEP 3: Now, go ahead and fill each egg with a spoonful of baking soda! You can add a pinch of glitter on top if desired!


STEP 4: Now it’s time for the excitement! Set out a bowl of vinegar for eyedroppers or meat basters. Or you can fill a squeeze bottle with vinegar.


Kids will love testing and retesting this simple chemical reaction, so I always recommend having extra vinegar on hand. If you are working with a group of kids, use small bowls and one egg each!


Don’t like the smell of vinegar? Try this activity with lemon juice and baking soda instead! Since lemon juice is also an acid, it produces a chemical reaction when combined with baking soda. Check out our lemon volcanos!


The plastic eggs will get messy, but you can turn the end of the activity into an egg washing station and water sensory play bin too!
