So today is one of those days when it is just time for me to let the kids go a bit wild. We read some books about volcanoes then we brought the volcano to AZ. With the help of my baby girl decorating a soon to demolished area and my son looking at her like she was nuts (each generation is the same, I am sure I got that look a time or two myself from my brother). The big boom was met with squeals and awe, and on this Friday I road the wave of supper mom. I got my directions from a Family Education. Get wild and enjoy your Wednesday.
- Dirt or wet sand
- Small shovel or spoon
- Two teaspoons baking soda
- White vinegar
- Build a mound of dirt ten inches high.
- Dig a deep hole in the middle of the mound with a small shovel.
- Put two teaspoons of baking soda in the hole.
- Then slowly pour in vinegar and watch your volcano erupt!
