The girls have been bugging Scott & I to build a Volcano with them for a while, So last night it was a family activity. They did great! Here are the steps we used in case you want to build one at home. this is a real eay one to do.
1st- Tape or glue a water bottle to cardboard.
2nd-Take wads of paper (or we used plastic bags) and tape them around the water bottle in a mountain shape.
3rd- place a piece of alluminum foil over the top and form. poke a hole at the top of the water bottle.
4th- once it is covered with foil you can paint, spray paint or whatever to color your volcano. My girls used craft paint.
5th- Explode your volcano- Put in the water bottle 60 ml. water, a couple drops of dish soap, orange or red food coloring. ( My girls did pink!Girly volcano) Then add 1/4 cup vinegar. next take 2 tblsp. baking soda and put in a thin square tissue. When you are ready to erupt, place the baking soda in the top. ( We doubled this- because we had a large bottle)
Make sure you check out the girls blogs they will have an eruption video posted on theres.
