Make your own Pumpkano
Your first question is…what in the Sam Hill is a Pumpkano? Newport Children’s Programmer Heather Semelroth took the science fair staple and put a fall-o-ween flourish on it.
If you want to make a Pumpkano, follow our simple DIY tutorial. Or, save yourself a mess and join her for Play Art: Spooky Science on Wednesday, October 28 at 4 p.m.
What you’ll need:
- Dollar Tree Styrofoam pumpkin
- Serrated knife (adults only)
- Baking soda
An adult will need to cut the top off your Styrofoam pumpkin.
NOTE: Miss Heather will have the pumpkins pre-carved at the program.
Next, carve a face for your Pumpkano.
Now, measure 1/2 cup of baking soda, put inside pumpkin.
Pour about 1 cup of vinegar inside and watch it go FIZZ!
Now you’ve done a spooky science project!
