Volcanoes!

Comments 2 Standard

A few weeks ago we did a study on volcanoes.  We got a few books from the library and just had to make our own.  I made up about 9 batches of play dough and we built our volcano around a quart canning jar. 

We painted…

…and had to have some trees and snow.

We lined up the players in this experiment and went to mixing our lava.  1 cup white vinegar, 2 TB baking soda, 1 TB liquid soap and red food coloring.  Mix all your liquids together in one container and pour it into the volcano.  Then add your baking soda with a quick stir and watch your lava flow!

It ended up being pink lava but it flowed just the same.   Zoe loved this project and mom and dad had fun with it too!

And one of Ezekiel just for fun!
