Baking Soda Volcano
A bubbling volcano from backing soda and vinegar
Using a few simple kitchen ingredients you can create a messy experiment that looks like a bubbling volcano.
2 T Water
1 T Baking soda
2 T Vinegar
Red food coloring
A container (see example)
1. Prepare your container. You could make it out of plaster-of-paris, or papier-mâché. A simple container that looks like a volcano is to take a small paper cup and put it in the middle of a paper plate. Now cover the whole thing with aluminum foil (leaving the top open of course).
2. Mix the water, baking soda and food coloring in the container.
3. Measure out the vinegar and pour it in all at once.
4. Stand back and watch the eruption.
