She’s gonna BLOW!! Our volcano experiment

Today was Tuesday experiment day!! We built a volcano and then let it EXPLODE!!!

Started with a plastic water bottle… cut the top and bottom off and duct taped together.Covered one of my metal trays in foil.

Next, we covered in cardboard (used a instant oatmeal box) to make it “volcano” shaped.

We covered the frame in foil and then rolled and added clay to the outside of the “frame”.

The kids insisted on painting it brown!! 🙂

Then we added baking soda(about 4 tablespoons) to the inside of the volcano (inside the water bottle). And slowly poured red tinted vinegar inside (about 1/2 Cup at a time)… Houston, we have liftoff!
