Using our old play-dough, together we fashioned the semblance of a volcano...and hid a small cup inside to hold our liquid.
When asked, "What color is the lava?" Immediately he responded: RED! So first he poured a bit of red water into the hidden cup.The Moveable Alphabet recommended using yeast so the lava would appear more solid. I couldn't tell a difference. Then he sprinkled a BIG tablespoon of baking soda in the water.
And, finally, the vinegar. When he smelled it, he said, "It smells like chicken broth." Really? ugh. I love the expression on his face here, just as the reaction begins.
Look at that smile! He loved the explosion. What an expression of satisfaction.
I'm gonna double-dog-dare some mommas to do this project. No pressure, of course, but I think your kiddos would love it.
