citric acid and bicarbonate of soda reaction {science experiment}

Hey readers,

Today we decided to do a simple science experiment to see what happens when you mix bicarbonate of soda, citric acid and water.

It is a really fun and quick activity to do with children and doesn’t take too much effort to put together.

What we used for the experiment is:

  • Few drops of red colouring
  • 2 teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 teaspoons of citric acid
  • One cup of water drizzled on


It’s probably best to do the experiment in the bath so everything’s all in one place to keep tidy, especially if you are using food colouring.

Place the citrus acid and bicarbonate of soda into a cup.


Put the food colouring in first or last. Then what ever you decide then add the water.


Make sure you move out of the aware as the end result will end in a fizz explosion.

The boys really enjoyed this as they got to poarticiapre and see the effects of the reactions of chemicals. (endothemic).

Who am I? 

Who am I?

I don’t know who I am anymore,

I have lost sight,

Of the person who I once was.

Keep writing 

Hey readers,

People say, ‘just keep writing’  is the mantra to live by. I write my blog on all sorts of things that inspire me, from poetry to the food I love. I am not a niche kind of person, I just go with what inspires me within that moment and share it with the world.

There are days when I completely lost my motivation to continue to write or even log into WordPress. As a suffer from anxiety and depression the simplest things can feel like climbing a mountain and sadly one of them is writing. Even though from a young age have found writing down the better way for me to communicate my emotions, the struggle is there.

But when I write it makes a huge difference to me. The hardest bit is to actually get started, as soon as crack that then my thoughts just flow and I have so many thoughts believe me and you!

Sometimes, I think my writing is rubbish, though I believe that should not stop me from writing as it has purpose.  I do believe it is a good mantra to keep writing, no matter what the length, one sentence or pages of words, it keeps your mind light up and can open up new ideas.  Not to mention the benefit of keeping constantly writing every day can build up your confidence and improve in the skill of writing. We can’t be all natural, but we can practice. Deep down that is ok, because even if no one enjoys my content, I still am getting something out of it, no matter if it is big or small it is helping. There are many other worse things to do in life then ramble of some words (my interpretation of  my work). Of course, I am my hardest critic. However, I am going to remain optimistic because I enjoy ands it helps deal with the shit in my life.
