I bought a couple of cases of Mentos thinking I would use them in little gift bags. When my daughter Natasha saw them she said "all you need now is a bottle of diet coke!" -- We went to "Wreck it Ralph" over Thanksgiving break, so I am sure that is why the idea came so quickly.
"Brilliant!" -- I responded. That is just what we are going to do. Now let's think up something clever to say on the cards.
After tossing lots of corny puns and other sayings around this is what we came up with --
We think you "GEYSER" awesome!
Hope you have a "BLAST" this Christmas
We then printed out some instructions from the Steve Spangler Science website and a demonstration picture to attach to the bottles.
It was something everyone could help with during the assembly process and oh-so much fun for the kiddos to deliver. We delivered our first round of Geyser Making Kits tonight and will do more in the next few days.
We definitely got a few confused looks, several Wreck it Ralf comments and lots of thank you's. It is definitely not your traditional plate of cookies, but hopefully it gets some ooh's and ahh's or gives the less adventureous souls their daily diet coke fix :)
I think it is a fun idea -- the question is -- will it get pinned? I am crossing my fingers -- so please feel welcome to PINTEREST away. We definitely wouldn't mind having this idea copied.
