Are you having fun at the Block Party so far? Thanks to all of you who commented on yesterdays post and have strolled to the other sites participating! Each blog is featuring Summer tips with different themes daily, so make sure you visit them to read (and enter their giveaways, too!).
For today’s Backyard Science Project, it’s time to get messy! Who doesn’t love a good volcano, right? I found a great protocol for a backyard volcano from FamilyEducation.com. Here’s how to get started:
Baking pan, Soda bottle (16 or 20 oz.), Moist soil, 1 tablespoon baking soda, 1 cup vinegar, Red food coloring
and the great outdoors!
Place the baking pan on the grass, and set the soda bottle in the middle of the pan. Mound and shape the moist soil around the bottle to form a mountain. Bring the soil right up to the top of the bottle’s opening, but don’t get the soil inside the bottle. Next, pour one tablespoon of baking soda into the bottle. Color one cup of vinegar with red food coloring and pour the colored vinegar into the bottle. Stand back and watch red foam spray out of the top and down the mountain like lava from a volcano!
