Have extra party hats? Your child will have a blast with this volcano experiment. If you don't have any party hats, you can make your own with paper.

Total Time: 5-10 minutes

Supplies:

  • 2 Tbsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 squirt liquid dish soap
  • Few drops food coloring - optional
  • vinegar
  • party hat
  • scissors
  • glass jar smaller than party hat

Steps:

  1. Cut zig zag on the tip of the party hat to resemble volcano.
  2. Using a jar smaller than the party hat - add baking soda, salt, and your choice of food coloring.

  4. Mix the ingredients together. Then add a squirt of liquid dish soap.
  5. Place hat over the glass cup. Set up your volcano station (for less mess, I used a baking sheet) and have your child pour vinegar into the hole of the volcano and watch the volcano erupt!
