Frozen Fizzy Easter Eggs Instructions
Now onto the fun part, creating your Frozen Fizzy Easter Eggs!
- In a large mixing cup, stir together the baking soda and water until the baking soda is dissolved. Stir in your first food coloring.
- Repeat with other colors.
- Pour or spoon the mixture into the egg-shaped silicone mold and freeze overnight or until completely frozen.
- With your Frozen Fizzy Easter Eggs ready, it’s time for the exciting chemical reaction! Pour vinegar into the shallow bowl, and slowly lower your frozen egg into it. Watch as the frozen baking soda egg fizzes and bubbles, delighting your children as it dissolves.

Alternative Experiment Ideas:
Variety is the spice of life, and that’s why I have some additional experiment ideas!
- Create frozen eggs using a solution made from vinegar and water. Dip the frozen eggs into a solution of baking soda and water.
- Experiment with different ratios of baking soda to water before freezing the eggs to see which brings a more exciting reaction.
- Feel free to use various food coloring shades to create a rainbow of Frozen Fizzy Easter Eggs!
Incorporating STEM activities into your homeschooling routine can engage and motivate your children. The Frozen Fizzy Easter Eggs activity is not only amusing but also provides opportunities for learning. This experiment showcases a chemical reaction, specifically the reaction of baking soda (a base) and vinegar (an acid), which produces carbon dioxide. Make the most out of this fun experiment by encouraging your children to take note of their observations and ask questions about the science behind this exciting activity.
