Fizzing Hands Soda

All Recipes

Parents, get ready for the bubbles! Here’s a twist on the iconic Baking Soda volcano experiment. From ARM & HAMMER™ Summer Camp Counselor Ana Dziengel of Babble Dabble Do

Ingredients & Supplies

Experiment Time: 25 minutes
Yields: 1 fizzing hand

  • 3 tablespoons ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda
  • Wide mouth jar (plastic or glass)
  • 3/4 cup vinegar
  • Liquid dish soap
  • Vinyl glove
  • Food coloring
  • Spoon
  • Paperclip
  • Rubber bands
  • Baking sheet or tray
  • Safety glasses


  1. Quick tip: get everything ready on a cookie sheet to make it easy to carry outside and clean up.
  2. Add vinegar, a good squeeze of dish soap, and food coloring to the jar. Stir with a spoon or swish to combine the ingredients. Set aside.
  3. (Adults only) Open up a paper clip and use a pointed end to poke a hole in each fingertip on the glove.
  4. Add 3 tablespoons ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda to the glove, shaking it to fill the fingertips.
  5. Place the open end of the glove over the top of the jar. Be careful NOT to spill any Baking Soda in.
  6. Place rubber bands around the base of the glove to secure it around the jar.
  7. Take your cookie sheet and jar/glove outside. Gently tip the glove up to empty the Baking Soda into the jar. Swirl everything around, then stand back to steer clear of the foamy reaction!
  8. Bonus step: if you dare, you can add more Baking Soda and vinegar for an even bigger reaction. (You may need a *hand* for cleanup.)
Note: This one gets messy. Take it outside for easy cleanup!
