We sent the kids outside to play with neighborhood friends this afternoon. They've been out there for about three hours now...playing, running, screaming, getting wet, etc. A little while ago, I took them out a treat of M & M's because I just happened to have the right number of bags. Then I sent Scott outside with the ingredients of a little science experiment...the old Mentos and Diet Soda.
Our kids have been bugging us to do this for a while. I bought the Mentos and soda a while ago but between our trip to Portland, the rain, and our house troubles, we haven't had the chance to do it. Today seemed like a good time.
And here is the resulting fountain. Afterward, Mika got the bright idea of trying to drink the remaining diet soda with Menthos in it. Yuck!
