STEM Experiment Oozing Pumpkins

Oozing pumpkins are a fun and easy STEM experiment for kids of all ages. With just a few household ingredients, you can create an oozing pumpkin that is sure to amaze your kids.

Soon everyone will be carving pumpkins and decorating their houses with them. But these pumpkins can be used for something fun and educational before being disposed of.

What You Need: – a carved pumpkin  – dish soap – baking soda – vinegar – food coloring (optional)

In a small bowl, combine some dish soap, food coloring, and baking soda. Exact amounts aren’t necessary.

The more dish soap, vinegar, and baking soda you use, the larger the chemical reaction will be!

Slowly pour some vinegar into the pumpkin.

Stand back and watch.  You should see a big, foamy, mess ooze from the pumpkin’s eyes, nose, and mouth!
