Diet Coke and Mentos

Have you done this with your kids? If not, you should!
A message board I visit once in a while had a thread about this activity. It reminded me that I’ve wanted to do it with my kids and just haven’t. Yesterday was the day we changed that.  photo 010eresized_zps64048709.jpg photo 015eresized_zps1910e96e.jpg

Brooklyn usually wants to go last with activities. This works well because Sierra always wants to go first! No arguments 🙂  photo 018ecropresized_zps8f4c7964.jpg photo 021ecropresized_zps4da41b8c.jpg

Brooklyn held the funnel in place for Payson.  photo 026eresized_zps55bbe68d.jpg photo 027eresized_zpsc899a405.jpg photo 029ecropresized_zps878a4323.jpg

Not bad for such a small bottle of coke.  photo 030ecropresized_zpsb063e242.jpg

Brooklyn picked up Ember to help her. Ember had a huge meltdown. Ember does not like being picked up by Brooklyn. I calmed her down and then set all her stuff up and told her she could do it herself if she wanted. Then she walked over to the soda and saw how high the table was and Brooklyn offered to hold her and this time she smiled and said yes. haha  photo 035eresized_zps986ac398.jpg photo 037eresized_zpsf19a88f2.jpg photo 039eresized_zps636d660a.jpg photo 040eresized_zps73ab5658.jpg

Brooklyn was really excited to go last!  photo 042eresized_zps3e155ab4.jpg

She told me she was really nervous. And she was pretty much running from the soda bottle as she was dropping her mentos in. haha! It was awesome.  photo 045ecropresized_zpsd11e43ae.jpg photo 049ecropresized_zps36e278db.jpg  photo 051ecropresized_zps4f220d08.jpg

The kids wanted to try putting some of the extra mentos in the leftover soda. photo 054eresized_zpsd086a9d9.jpg photo 058eresized_zps2102fb7e.jpg photo 061eresized_zps64104cc9.jpg

  • That is awesome! I'll now always remember not to eat mentos while drinking soda. Imagine the eruption I'd have spewing out of my mouth!
