Mini Volcanoes

My daughter is a science lover! We spent 45 minutes filling up 2 cookie sheets with mini volcanoes. We only stopped because we ran out of baking soda, and Mercedes was VERY upset about stopping. For the next hour and a half she kept asking me if we could do it "one more" time.

Supplies: baking soda
                food coloring
                medicine dropper
                cookie sheet

Instruction: Mix food coloring with vinegar. Cover cookie sheet with a thin layer of baking soda. Let your child squirt vinegar onto the baking soda with a medicine dropper to watch the mini volcanoes erupt!

Mercedes begged to do more volcanoes for the rest of the whole day, so we bought more baking soda and did more the next day...
