We started to see pumpkins in the markets and soon you will probably buy one or even several to cook the flesh, to roast the seeds or simply to decorate the house in autumn colors! And there's Halloween in October too!
So all the reasons are good to buy pumpkins and I give you one more to use it in a fun way!
Begin by cutting the top of the pumpkin to be able to empty it.
Put the pumpkin on a baking tray or other accessory that protects your work surface. We're gonna do some damage!
Add in order: about 1 tablespoon of baking soda, a few drops of liquid dish soap and a few drops of food coloring. If you have several pumpkins, it would be interesting to change color from one pumpkin to another.
This is the magic moment that will surprise everyone, especially children, but even the adults around will applaud: gently pour 1 cup of white vinegar into the pumpkin and watch the spectacular chemical reaction!
A volcano pumpkin is very impressive to see! And it is really fun!
This is a nice way to use an emptied pumpkin: they can still be used for Halloween and your decorations, you just have to rinse them.
