Homeschool Chronicles: How to make a volcano


All praise and thanks belongs to Allaah. Lord & Creator of all the worlds. May Allaah bestow His peace & mercy upon the Prophet, his family, his companions and on all of those who follow them truth until The Last Day Aameen.

As salaamu alaykunna,



Who can resist making their own volcano??? Certainly, we couldn't! Again this was the week my sister was in town and we decided to teach about volcanoes. 

The children learned three facts about volcanoes, watch a science video about them, and then watch one erupt ........well watch a homemade one erupted! lol

What you'll need:

Food Coloring
Baking Soda & Vinegar

So as if you was making playdough just mix the flour and water together- now if you want a colorful volcano, then just add food coloring to the water and proceed to make the dough.

Take the dough and cover the bottle with it, leaving the mouth of the bottle exposed enough to pour the baking soda and vinegar in.

That's it!

Here's our volcano in action - we made it erupt with no food coloring, then food coloring in the next vid.

Enjoy :)
