Science Project At Home – Volcano Eruption

This is one simplest and easiest science experiment we done at home during the school holiday. Because I’m so lazy had so little time to spare, I didn’t make up a nice volcano with plasticine/dough or paper mache. What I did was just use newspaper. It didn’t look nice at all , as it’s done up in less than 5 minutes for the children had great fun.

This is our “Volcano”!!

Pouring vinegar into the “volcano” to make the eruption

They finished up one whole bottle of the vinegar. :D Keep wanting to repeat this activity. This is such simple activity, all you need is newspaper, bicarbonate soda as well as vinegar.

    Looks like fun. My daughter’s almost three, she might be a little young for this but what the heck, I’ll give it a shot this afternoon and see if she likes it.

    no harm trying to see if she likes it or not

    Thanks for the great idea…wonder when we will get a chance to go to the beach. :P

    Wish have more time to do up a better project. If use dough to make the volcano, it definitely going to be much fun and the kids will certainly enjoy it more…sadly, time is the main hinder.
