Wondering how to make a puking pumpkin? Probably not. But if you want to thrill the boys in your family, making a pumpkin vomit will get you bonus points in the “coolest parent” category.
The boys in my life love the weird, gross, and strange. Anything icky seems to be extremely funny.
A puking pumpkin fits all those categories making me the coolest mom on the planet. Oh yes. Hello, Mommy of the Year Award! So, if you want to impress your kids by making pumpkins vomit, this video includes everything you need to know.
What you need:
- Pumpkin carving tools
- An idea for how you want your pumpkin to look
- Green food coloring
- Baking soda
First, carve your pumpkin. Silly faces and stunned faces work great. You just want to be sure there is an opening low enough to the front of the pumpkin that the “vomit” will spill out. The higher the mouth’s opening, the more vinegar you will need.
One your pumpkin is ready for his intestinal distress, pour in baking soda. Mix together vinegar and green food coloring. Pour the vinegar over the baking soda and watch it bubble.
