We studied volcanos a few weeks ago with our My Fathers World, Exploring Countries and Cultures. I felt compelled to let big brother make a volcano… I mean… All kids should get to make a volcano sometime in their life, right?

He used Model Magic to form the volcano. It takes a few days for the model magic to dry… just so you know.

Once the volcano was dry, we put a couple of tablespoons of baking soda into the top of the volcano. We added a few drops of red food coloring to about 1 1/2 cups of white vinegar. Big Brother and Big Sis took turns pouring vinegar in and making “lava” pour out of the volcano. Little Sis wasn’t interested… she said it smelled bad.

Big Brother was so excited… can you tell?

We also looked up several videos on you tube of volcanos erupting and checked out lots of books from our local library.

Do your kids like Magic School Bus? Did you know that all of the Magic Schoolbus videos are on you tube? We watched this one all about volcanos:
