Follow this Shimmer Down Glitter Explosion Experiment how-to for a shiny new twist on the old baking soda and vinegar explosion observations. We've all seen the exploding volcano at least a million times, but this new project will fascinate your kids even more, and it's beautiful to watch too! Teach your older kids about acids and bases with this experiment, or introduce your youngest ones to basic chemical reactions. This hands-on activity is perfect to gauge how much information your child has retained in a fun way that they won't even know they're learning.
