Whatever Wednesday: Mentos and Diet Coke

I'm sure that a lot of you have seen this before, on the internet or on Mythbusters. Well we thought that our boys would really enjoy this. It's a fun summer activity!!


All you need to do it:
Mentos
Diet Coke (has to be diet)

(My husband told my oldest to keep his head over it....)

What to do:
Add at least 4 Mentos (at the same time) to the pop, stand back and watch the fun! That's it! It's super fun, so you should go try it out!!

The more Mentos you add, the higher the pop goes. The first photo only had 2, the bottom one has 4.

Luv it--this is going to make my kids' day! And there is never a shortage of diet Coke around this house, that's for sure!

We did this in winter(made a mess in the snow!) with a gadget we bought from the dollar store. It is a tube that fits on the bottle and a string that you pull, so that it drops 7-8 Mentos in at once if you want and wow it was awesome! great year round fun!

LOL - that was just too funny to tell your child to hold his head over it. Sounds like something my husband would do!

In other words never eat mentos and drink diet coke at the same time? I'd hate to know what that would! :)
