Tinker like it’s Thursday 
Create stuff and learn through exploration
This week’s link:

Description: For the last Tinker Like It’s Thursday I thought we’d go out with a bang and tinker with an explosion! You’ll want to do this one in either a sink, bath or outdoors… or you’ll get messy (and smelly)! We’ll explore a chemical reaction which is familiar to us as we used it for our jet boats, but this time we’ll stop the gas from escaping anywhere until things finally go boom! Who’ll create the loudest explosion?! 

Resources required: Baking soda, vinegar and a sandwich bag with a really good seal (the ones with the ‘zip locks’ work best!), few sheets of toilet paper
Age: KS 1 or 2
