Celebrate the fourth of July with snakes! All Spark Fireworksconducted an awesome chemistry experiment, black snake fireworks! Kids are amazed as a super long snake grows and twists right before their eyes! The snake is simply "puffing ash" caused by the chemical reaction of carbonate and CO2! All you need is sand, powdered sugar, baking soda, and lighter fluid. Visit All Spark Fireworks for directions and the explanation! Click here and here to see black snake fireworks in action! Check out this video tutorial by Labconco Corporation to create multiple mini snakes!
