Large Tray (cookie sheet to catch lava)
2 -Paper Cups
Rolling Pin (or use your hands to roll out the play dough)
Measuring Cups and Spoons
3 tsps baking soda
½ to 1 cup white vinegar
#1: Place the paper cup right side up in the center of your tray and begin wrapping the tin foil around the brim of the cup. You may need a few pieces of tin foil to create your mountain shape.
#2: Roll your playdough out with your rolling pin or hand and place the flattened playdough over the tin foil and rim of the cup. You may need to roll out a few sections of playdough in order to create your mountain shape.
#3: Allow your kids to decorate the volcano with playdough trees and playdough animals.
#4: Create your lava mixture by placing 3 tsps baking soda inside the cup inside the volcano. In the other paper cup combine ½ to 1 cup white vinegar and a few drops of food coloring. Now pour the vinegar food coloring mixture onto the baking soda inside the volcano cup. And watch the eruption! This is a simple acid-base reaction.
