J really liked making spooky potions. This is another way to modify the activity. We used Play Dough, but there are a million ways to make a volcano. Any I bet you have play dough on hand…
PS. Be prepared to toss the play dough after the eruption. It was gooey.
We started with a cup of baking soda. I used an old applesauce up because I wanted to be able to toss this when we finished. I also attempted to protect our little table from a huge mess by placing our cup on a piece of cardboard (from a diaper box), but it didn’t make that big of a difference.
We built our volcano around our cup of baking soda. J squirted the vinegar into the volcano, and boom! We had our eruption. You can always add more baking soda to prolong the volcano’s life.
Here’s our sticky volcano after our experiment! Good times.
