I dug up some old toiletry caps, let her fill them with baking soda and then we covered them with cupcake liners. (Why not, right?)
The fun would probably still be going on if we hadn't run out of vinegar.
An unexpected piece of fun for Juliet was the varying sizes of the caps--this gave her a small, medium, and large volcano which she enjoyed comparing to one another. As in, "Okay, now it's the small's turn! Wow--that's good. Okay, now it's the largest one's turn! Woo-hoo!"
Good cheap fun on a hot summer day. :)
This project was inspired by the "Earth" book we got in a chik-fil-a kids meal. Now we are looking for these:
Time For Kids: Volcanoes!
The Best Book of Volcanoes
Volcanoes (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 2)
Any volcano favorites to share with us?
