Is there anything cooler than a volcanic eruption?
How about a Kool-aid Volcanic Eruption?
Yeah, they are cool, but not as cool as baking soda, vinegar and kool-aid volcanoes!
The kool-aid (we used cherry and tropical punch) gives the lave an amazing color! It also pretty much eliminates the vinegar smell! All you smell is kool-aid and kool-aid smells pretty good!
Here’s how we experienced Kool-aid Volcanic Eruptions!
Simply mix 2 kool-aid packets (in your desired flavor) into 1/3 cup of baking soda. Then put some vinegar into a spouted measuring cup. You could also use an eye dropper or turkey baster.
The kids had so much fun experiencing their very own Kool-aid Volcanic Eruptions! This project encourages the exploration of science (flow of gravity, build up of gases and the mixing of different properties/chemicals), problem solving (asking questions and seeking answers to how to keep the bubbles going) and math (measuring out the ingredients).
