Place 1-2 cups of vinegar into zip lock bag that you’ve drawn a jack-o-lantern or a ghost face on.

Place a few drops of orange food dye into the pumpkin bag (we actually used jello to dye ours)

Go outside.

Hold the piece of paper with the baking soda in the bag without it touching the vinegar yet. Seal bag tightly.

Give to child and have them shake it up real good!

If you’ve added enough ingredients to the bag you may get a nice little surprise POP….so watch out!
