 Science Experiment


Self-Inflating Balloon

A twist on a vinegar-and-baking-soda experiment, if you put baking soda in an empty bottle and vinegar in a balloon, when you attach the ballon over the mouth of the bottle and let the vinegar pour in, the resulting gas will be enough to inflate the balloon on its own. 


Please supervise your children during all activities.

What would you say if we told you, you were going to be inflating a balloon without blowing into it or using helium. Here is what you need to make it happen:

  • balloon
  • 1 liter plastic bottle
  • funnel ( Be careful pouring)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons of vinegar

https://www.messforless.net/self-inflating-balloon-experiment/ follow this link for more information.


  1. Clean a 1 litre bottle and let dry. Using a funnel, add 1 teaspoon of baking soda to the bottle
  2. Place the small end of the funnel into the opening of the balloon. Hold carefully and pour the vinegar into the balloon.
  3. Carefully stretch out the open end of the balloon and place over the mouth of the bottle, while leaving the rest of the balloon hanging.
  4. Hold on to the balloon at the point where it is attached to the bottle. Lift up the rest of the balloon to pour the vinegar inside the bottle, while continuing to hold the balloon at the seal. When the vinegar interacts with the baking soda on the bottom of the bottom, it will start to bubble and inflate the balloon.

How did this happen? When the vinegar and baking soda mix together, carbon dioxide gas is produced and this gas causes the balloon to inflate.
