How to Make Your Own Soda at Home | Kid Food Chemistry

We love science in our family. Edible science, which is the kind you can eat, is the best. Last week, we showed you how to make homemade ice cream using food chemistry. Today we will show you how to make your own soda at home. It is very easy to do and tastes great.

My son, Cory, likes to choose desserts in cook books and make them from scratch. In the past we have made snow cones, brownies, and a carrot cake. The learning that happens while cooking is invaluable. There is so much science and math while cooking. We even incorporate literacy because my son reads the recipe while we make the dessert.

In my opinion making soda is not really cooking. It is about mixing things together. However, the great thing about making this soda is you don’t need a machine. You will mix the ingredients by using a spoon.

Although soda is not the most healthy drink for kids, it is a nice treat once in a while.

Below is what’s needed…

Citric Acid (Food grade)

Water

Baking Soda

Food Coloring

Sugar – add as little or much as you like

Watch the step-by-step video below to learn how to make your own soda at home. This is a fun edible science project that incorporates food chemistry. Remember, no machine is needed.

Kids will love this activity because it is kitchen chemistry and they can eat the experiment.

Have fun with your kids at home with food and science!
