Volcanic eruptions and rainbow lava experiment – My Little Scientist


Volcanic eruptions and colorful lava experimentArt and science come together in this fun and colorful experiment. This activity comes together with just 3 ingredients and no preparation;  In a brown cup (close to look like a real volcano) we put roughly 1 cup of baking soda with few drops of food coloring, then we poured the vinegar, enough to start seeing the eruptions (due to acid – base reaction).

We did many until there was no more vinegar left at home 🙂
