This science experiment is adapted from Inspirational Labratories.Candy Science: Dancing Hearts


  • container/jar (Height is more important than width. A mason jar may be best.)
  • baking soda
  • vinegar
  • water
  • candy hearts
  1. Mix 1/2 tablespoon of baking soda in 1 cup of water. Add to container. Add enough baking soda and water solution to make liquid level at least a few inches high.
  2. Measure out 1/4 cup of vinegar.
  3. Add few candy hearts to your baking soda and water solution.  Observe the bubbles.
  4. Slowly add 1/4 cup of vinegar to your baking soda, water, and candy hearts.
  5. Watch the candy hearts rise and fall. They appear to dance around the container doing flips and all sorts of fun stuff.
  6. Play with the amounts of baking soda and vinegar to get more or less bubbles. Some of the candy hearts might stick to the bottom of the container. Push them around and they should rise up again. If the hearts float on the top, push them down or drop in a few different hearts.
