We are currently learning about volcanoes, and to help Monkey remember the different parts of a volcano, we decided to make a (safely) erupting volcano!

The volcano...we made it out of wire, clay, and acrylic paint.

In a small plastic paint cup, we put a tablespoon of baking soda, a tablespoon of dish soap, 5 drops of red food coloring, and 5 drops of yellow food coloring.

Next, we put the cup in the top of the volcano. Then, we added 2 tablespoons of white vinegar.

The beginning of the eruption....

The kids thought this was delightfully messy and fun!
