  • 3 tablespoons ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda
  • 2-3 cups vinegar
  • Measuring cups and measuring spoons
  • Duct tape
  • 3 pencils

  1. Assemble and decorate your rocket, using the pencils as ‘feet’. Secure them to the bottle using duct tape.
  2. Fill the empty bottle about halfway with vinegar.
  3. Add 3 tablespoons of ARM & HAMMER Baking Soda onto a small square of paper towel.
  4. Roll the paper towel tightly enough to fit inside bottle, and so that no baking soda can spill out.
  5. Place paper towel full of baking soda inside bottle and plug with cork. (Do not plug too tightly, but don’t allow any liquid to spill out.)
  6. Take the bottle outside. Turn the bottle upside down, place on its ’feet’ and STAND BACK!
  7. Watch as the rocket soars into the sky.
