Volcano Day!

I want to apologize in advance for the weird picture color below.  There was not, actually, a nuclear explosion occurring during the time of photography causing a blinding, picture-distorting light.  I just had my camera on the wrong setting.

Anyway,

Did you know...



You can replicate an erupting volcano simply with Diet Coke and Mentos?


It explodes in a big gush and sprays everyone with foam.

Washable, non-staining foam.

Or...

You could use tomato sauce, a power sprayer, and end up with, in the words of my husband, "realistic lava flow" ...


and "realistic looking eruption-ing" (not a word)...



and a need for lots and lots of this...

Guess which one my daughter chose to explode her 3rd grade volcano?



Of course she did.

I did not know that mentos did it. When I taught, we always used baking soda, vinegar and foodcolor! Super cool and the look on her face is priceless.
