Food Crafts For Kids - Make Your Own Soda

This is one of our easy Food Crafts For Kids that is maybe more of a science lesson than a crafts. With this craft the kids will see how the acid in the juice reacts with the alkaline bicarbonate of soda. In this easy food craft for kids they make a simple lemon and orange soda that is good enough to drink.

What you need for this craft:

  • 2 Cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 Cups freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 Teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
  • 4 Teaspoons of sugar
  • 4 Cups of water

How to do this craft:

  1. Mix the juices and the water.
  2. Add the sugar and stir until melted.
  3. Add the bicarbonate of soda and stir (observe the bubbles as the carbon dioxide forms as a result of the bicarbonate of soda reacting with the juice.)
  4. Your soda drink is ready to drink.

You have to drink the soda immediately as the bubbles will disappear fast when the reaction stops.

This craft is an example of the many food crafts for kids that is more than just fun, it is a science lesson as well.
