  • Stretch the open end of the balloon over the neck of the bottle. Make sure it is fit in the mouth tightly.
  • Take care that the baking soda from the balloon should not spill into the bottle.
  • |Now, hold onto the balloon at the bottle neck, and pick up the heavy part of the balloon so that all the baking soda falls into the vinegar at the bottom of the bottle.
  • Ask the child to observe what happens. The balloon should start inflating.
