Get Wet!

Turn regular water into a tasty treat perfect for consuming on a hot day! Your child will learn more about chemical reactions, and how ingredients interact together, with interesting and tasty results!

What You Need:

  • 2-3 lemons
  • Water
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1+ teaspoon sugar
  • Ice cubes
  • Paring knife
  • Glass


What You Do:

  1. Invite your child to help slice the lemons in half using a paring knife. Learning how to use a knife, with adult supervision, is an important skill and great for honing hand-eye coordination!
  2. Now she can get out a glass and juice the sliced lemons into the glass, making sure the juice is free of any seeds.
  3. Brainstorm with your child how she could add carbonation to her lemon juice. Lemon juice is an acid, which reacts when paired with a base, causing bubbly results!
  4. Invite your child to add the baking soda to the lemon juice and see what happens! She might be pretty surprised with the results!
  5. Now your child can add water to the glass, filling it three-fourths full and then add sugar to taste.
  6. She can finish her lemony, fizzy water with ice cubes and enjoy!
