CocaCola & Mentos VS Bunch O Balloons!

Are you looking for your next fun family activity? Look no further! This is a great one for the entire family!

CocaCola + Mentos Candy + Bunch O Balloons = CRAZY FAMILY FUN!

*Fun Fact! Carl was the first person online (that we know of) that figured out that BunchOBalloons will screw on a 2 liter soda bottle!

The bunch o balloons on top of the soda bottle is a trick that Carl came up with earlier this year that made a huge WAVE online! The CocaCola and Mentos experiment is not new, but it’s ALWAYS fun! You can get Bunch O Balloons and Mentos on Amazon for the best price! When we do these types of experiments we like to make sure to get the best price possible. Plus, I love having everything shipped to my house. If the Diet Coke wasn’t so heavy, I’d probably have that shipped as well.

This is a little sneak peak behind this scenes of making the video! We love to get a lot of photos, so we have options for thumbnails, and to capture our family’s memories. It is funny to capture the “glamorous” behind the scenes angles that you might miss just watching the video. We love what we do because we get to spend our time making Coke and Mentos explosions with our 3 boys, who wouldn’t love that? We have actually done this experiment a few different ways, but oddly enough it doesn’t always go as planned. Sometimes the chemical reaction between the soda and the mentos is unpredictable, and doesn’t do as well…like when we tried to put the Soda and Mentos in a Wubble Bubble….that did not work!

They look so awesome all standing there ready to go! Little did we know…we were getting ourselves into a HUGE mess! I mean, we knew how it was going to go, but it got a little out of control with 3 boys throwing the balloons everywhere! Every time Carl turned his back he was getting pegged by a balloon, hurling from the hand of a little boy. The deep tummy laughs that come from this experient will for sure put a smile on your face!

This took about 30 minutes to clean up, but it was so worth it! The boys had a great time, and we had so much fun watching them laugh, push each other in the pool (which they do daily, and still think it’s funny), and spend time together. This experiment can be dangerous, so be smart and keep little kids away from the explosions! We highly recommend trying this with your family, and if you do…we’d love to see photos!

Life isn’t always perfect, and most days if feels far from it, but we make the most of it by being kind, and having fun together!
