• 1 empty M&M’s minis tube safety goggles
  • vinegar
  • baking soda
  • water
  • 1 Alka-Seltzer tablet


Be sure to try this experiment outdoors wearing safety goggles. You can decorate your M&M minis tube and squeeze below cap like rockets.

Using the water and seltzer tablet and squeeze below cap:

  1. Put on those safety goggles and head outside.
  2. Break the seltzer tablet in 1/8 pieces.
  3. Open the lid from the squeeze below cap and put a teaspoon (5 ml) of water into the tube.
  4. Do the next two steps quickly.
  5. Drop your tablet piece into the tube and snap the cap on tightly (make sure it’s tightly snapped.)
  6. Quickly place the tube on a flat surface (cap side down) and step back at least 2 meters.
  7. In a moment your rocket will POP and launch up in the air.


The vinegar and the baking soda will have a chemical reaction making carbon dioxide (the air we breathe out) and as the carbon dioxide is being released, it puts a whole lot of pressure inside the tube which causes it to blast off, and the Alka-Seltzer tablet will dissolve in the water creating carbon dioxide.

Using the vinegar and baking soda and M&M’s minis tube:

  1. Put on those safety goggles and head outside.
  2. Open lid to tube and fill it with 2 tablespoons of vinegar.
  3. Add a quarter of a teaspoon of baking soda on the inside of the lid.
  4. Do the next two steps quickly.
  5. Attach the lid to the tube on tightly (making sure it’s tightly secured)
  6. Quickly place the tube on a flat surface (cap side down) and step back at least 2 meters.
  7. In a moment your rocket will POP and launch up in the air.

The movie begins with Alex as a young cub named Alakay in Africa with his father Zuba trying to teach him how to fight. During this, another lion Makunga challenges Zuba to a fight to be the head of the tribe and poachers subsequently kidnap Alex as a young cub where he eventually ends up in the Central Park zoo in New York.
The story then jumps ahead to continue where the first movie left off , with the group of animals on Madagascar including Alex, Marty, Melmen and Gloria, the tight knit group of animal friends that started their adventure in the first movie. They decide to make their escape back to New York in an old delapidated airplane piloted by our penguin friends Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private with chimpanzee buddies Mason and Phil who do their comical shananigans to keep the plane flying. But eventually everything comes to a halt as they crash land in Africa and meet animals of their own species. Alex is then reunited with his mother and father, Marty feels ordinary after finding out that other zebras have the same talents as himself.

Melman is convinced he is sick and offers himself as a sacrifice to the volcano to make the river water fl ow again, as he is on the edge of the volcano Gloria realizes that he is the only one for her and steps in to stop him. Meanwhile, back where the river isn’t flowing, a group of tourists who are basically stranded in the jungle make camp and subsequently build a dam upriver thus cutting off the flow to the watering hole. Alakay and Marty leave the reserve to find the problem and find the camp of the tourists where he uses his dancing skills to mezmerize the crowd as most of them recognize him from The Central Park zoo. This ultimately allows the dam that the tourists built to be taken down and water restored to the reserve. The majority of our watchers like and say.

Animal crackers have been a childhood snack for all kinds of people and can make us feel nostalgic. Many of us eat them to this day. You can eat them in different ways like, dipping them in your milk, coffee, or even cover them in chocolate. There are several brands that sell animal crackers. We ha

ve Stauffer’s animal crackers which comes in original and chocolate gram flavor. You can buy the 24 oz. or the 46 oz. Original Animal Crackers in a cute bear jug. Mother’s brand made the frosted animal cookies that we loved growing up since 1914 but when the company went bankrupt Kellogg bought the company and kept the cookies alive.  Barnum makes the animal crackers that come in the circus themed box. Believe it or not the strings at the top of the boxes were for decorating the tree for the holiday season not to be used as a handle.

Now the circus boxes have a cardboard handle instead of a string. April 18 is recognized as National Animal Cracker Day so save your appetites to eat lots and lots of animal crackers.
