Don't try this at home viewers - the potassium reaction at least will catch fire. All will result in H2 gas and dissolution of the metals.

Also adding acid will speed up the reaction, it might prove worth your tme to try Lithium in water by itself first and then in HCl to note a difference of reactivity.
