A quick science experiment you can craft at home, the "Fizz Inflator" takes simple reactions to inflate the balloon. Why? To teach how reactions create byproducts, in this case carbon dioxide, which is invisible - until you see it inflate the balloon!

You'll need:

- Empty water bottle

- 1/2 cup of vinegar

- Small balloon

- Baking soda

- Funnel

Watch the video to find out how these ingredients lead to a fun, gassy reaction. Be sure to work with an adult around when handling liquids or conducting any experiment!
