Volcano Lesson 101 :)
1. My son LOVES dinosaurs and volcanoes. He already had this very cute stamp set made by Melissa and Doug that had dinosaurs and a volcano stamp. He started our lesson by using the stamps to make a "scene" including dinosaurs and a volcano. We just used a basic piece of white paper.
2. While he was happy stamping away, I got together our materials for our volcano lesson. All you need are: a cookie sheet with sides, one canister of regular playdoh, some vinegar (I used balsamic but any vinegar will do the trick), some baking soda, and a spoon.
3. I placed the playdoh in the center of the cookie sheet and made it into a rough shape of a volcano. I then used my thumb to push a hole in the center of our volcano. We placed some baking soda into the hole (little one liked to do this part). And that I poured some vinegar into the hole, which makes the "volcanic eruption." :)
4. Here is a video of our "volcanic eruption" lesson in action :) Enjoy! It's an easy, peasy lesson and loads of fun! :)
