Bubbling Volcano

Egads! Stand back before the lava gets you!

You will need:
  • Small bowl
  • Tray (for spills)
  • Tablespoon baking soda
  • Tablespoon white vinegar
  • Food coloring (optional)

How to:
  1. Place small bowl on tray. (We used an old cookie sheet.)
  2. If using food coloring, tint vinegar in a separate small bowl.
  3. Pour baking soda into bowl.
  4. Add vinegar.
  5. Stand back!! (Or not.)

Thoughts from me:
The vision I had? This super-cool creation that would bubble over the bowl and pour onto the tray. We even doubled the recipe for more thrills.

What we got? 30 seconds of fizzy bubbles. Elliott was VERY into the fizziness, but when it was over, he looked up and said, "Is that it?" Exactly, my friend, exactly.

New feature!!
Elliott has expressed an interest in taking part in the blog, so his thoughts (and words) on each project will now be included...

Elliott's Evaluation:
We did this craft. It bubbled a lot. But then it didn't do anything. But I liked doing this craft a lot!

  1. the theme with the fizzing ones seems to be that they fail to live up to E's expectations.....
