The incredible dancing raisin
Surprise your friends with this amazing magic trick.
Raisins contain lots of goodness that help to keep your body healthy.
You will need:
large clear glass
250ml tap water
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
Add a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda and stir well until you can't see it anymore (it has dissolved).
Carefully move your glass onto a plate, as the next step might get messy.
Measure 60ml of vinegar and slowly pour it into the glass.
The water will get very fizzy. Wait until it stops fizzing.
Now, drop five or six raisins into the glass, one at a time.
At first the raisins will sink to the bottom, but wait for a minute and...
...as if by magic the raisins will start dancing and bouncing up and down in the glass all by themselves!
Remember, don't drink the water or eat the raisins you are using for the magic trick.
