If your child is anything like mine, he/she gets REALLY excited about cool experiments…esp ones that erupt!! And it doesn’t get much cooler than an ice volcano!!!
I didn’t come up with this experiment, but I think it is super-cool!! You mix baking soda and water, add some food coloring and then pour it over this:
Wait impatiently for it to freeze…and then take it out of the freezer, pull the golf ball out and the plastic wrap off and take it outside. Squirt a little vinegar into your ice volcano and watch it erupt!!
My son and I did the first steps of this experiment this morning before I started working. Our volcanoes are in the freezer as we speak…wonder how they’ll come out?!?! I’ll let you know 🙂
And if any of you want to try out this awesome experiment, here is the link where I got it:
Show me pics of how your volcanoes turn out!!
