Happy Halloween! Let’s dive into the world of spooky science where magical spells are actually chemical reactions. When you mix different things and they change to make something new, that’s a chemical reaction at work. Take baking soda and citric acid: mix them together and you’ll see them dance into a bubbly potion because of the reaction between a base and an acid. Add this to milk, and voila! You get a fast-rising, creamy milk foam, perfect for Halloween concoctions. But guess what?
These reactions aren’t just for Halloween; they’re all around us! When your bread turns golden-brown in the toaster or when your green banana becomes yellow, you’re witnessing everyday magic, all thanks to chemical reactions. So whether it’s in a witch’s cauldron or your kitchen, remember, it’s not just magic—it’s chemistry!
- 1 Witch’s Caldron
- 1 Packet of Picot (Baking Soda + Citric Acid)
- 1/2 a cup milk
Preparation: Place your mini cauldron in the center of the provided tray. This will be the stage for our magical brew!
Add the Magic Dust: Carefully sprinkle some Picot (that’s our baking soda and citric acid mix) into the cauldron. This is the first part of our spell!
Pour in the Potion: Slowly pour the milk into the cauldron, right on top of the Picot. Watch closely!
Witness the Magic: Observe the frothy, bubbly, foamy magic happening inside! It’s not just a witch’s brew, but a real chemical reaction right before your eyes!
Clean-Up Spell: Once your observation is complete, and you’ve enjoyed the magic, make sure to clean up. Even witches need to keep their potion-making area tidy!
