Volcano Fun!

We are learning all about dinosaurs, and what would a theme about dinosaurs be without making a volcano?

Volcano Activity

First, Hailey mixed up a mountain- we used:
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
2 tbs cooking oil

She formed a mountain around a small water bottle.

Then she painted it.  We didn’t wait for the salt dough to dry before painting, and it worked out fine.

We set up a little area for our dinosaurs.  Hailey added a little pond (lower left hand corner), some rocks, trees, dinosaurs, and of course the volcano.

Time to set off the volcano!! In the bottle we put:
warm water
red food coloring
Dawn dish soap
2 tbsp of baking soda

Volcano Activity

Hailey added the vinegar!

The dinosaurs heard that the volcano was going to erupt again, so they wanted to get a closer look.

Hailey loved it!

Hailey wanted to see a bigger explosion, so when Rich got home, we mixed everything up in a soda bottle and put the top on the bottle and let the gasses built up for a bit.

Here is what happens when you do that:
