Give your child a small dish filled with vinegar. Show them how to use the pipette to squeeze up some vinegar and pour it into the ornaments. The ornaments will start to fizz and overflow. At first, the mixture will be white, but once the reaction hits the food coloring, it will turn whatever color you dyed it. Young kids will find that particularly thrilling.

Christmas Activity for kids

The Science of Fizzing Ornaments Baking soda is a base and vinegar is an acid. When the two materials mix, they create a chemical reaction that gives off carbon dioxide. This gas rises into the air, taking some food coloring and bubbles with it, making a pretty, glittery fizz that is completely safe for kids to touch.
