You get the idea.
You'll need a small container to start your volcano, think shot glass size. Anything you can throw out or clean works just fine. You know those small plastic containers with lids for a side of dressing? Those will work too.
If you desire, grab some clay from the craft store or just use dirt/mud from outside.
Sculpt your volcano using the mud/clay/etc.
Place on a plate, and help your kids add one tablespoon of baking soda to the inside of each volcano.
Add a few drops of red food coloring.
Finally, give your kids a small glass of vinegar and tell them to pour it inside their volcano...and it "erupts!"
Obviously you can be extra crafty and make bigger more elaborate volcanoes or just use the container and an imagination. The choice is yours.
Have a fab Monday!
