Instructions:

Work together to build an epic volcano! This is a great little engineering project to challenge your kids with. It works best if you leave a few small gaps in the volcano so that the lava can flow out everywhere. Leave a gap in the middle for the lava to erupt out of!

Fill the gap in the middle of your volcano with baking soda (approx. 2/3 full works well).

Make your lava mixture by combining the vinegar, a few drops of food coloring if you wish, and a squirt of dish soap (this makes for some cool bubbly lava). Now comes the really fun part! Let your kids help to pour the lava mixture onto the baking soda and watch as your volcano erupts! You can let them continue to add more lava mixture using the pipette.

This really is a fun STEAM activities and we guarantee your kids will want to wash it up and start all over again with a bigger and better volcano!
