Volcanoes!

The mini volcanoes were such a big hit with Mercedes, my husband and I decided to make her some big ones outside.

Supplies: plastic bottle
                baking soda
                vinegar
                food coloring (optional)
                funnel

Instructions: Pour vinegar into plastic bottle (mix food coloring in ahead of time if you want). Our bottle was 12 oz. and we filled it about 1/4 of the way full...it's not an exact science, we're still experimenting to get the perfect explosion. With a funnel, dump about a Tbsp. of baking soda in the bottle with the vinegar, then stand back to watch the volcano erupt!


Great explosion!

We made several of these.


And tried different colors too!
