Build a Backyard Volcano
Create a volcanic eruption right in your own backyard when you Build a Backyard Volcano. Enjoy the science of acids and bases and make fun use of the chemical reaction that occurs between baking soda and vinegar.
In this rather classic method, we added a little something from the refrigerator to slow down the reaction process and it really made the backyard volcano a real treat to observe. Sometimes you make the volcano and it is over within seconds. This activity is even better because you can watch it as it unfolds.
You may want to add a few plastic dinosaurs to the scene for some fun playtime as well. Add the volcanic eruption to your prehistoric playtime experience. The kids will love it!
