Snow Volcano

The children used equipment from the mud kitchen to collect lots of snow.

Then we patted it into the shape of a volcano.

I put a little tub in the top of the volcano and we added baking soda, food colouring and washing up liquid.  Then we added the magic ingredient- vinegar!

“It’s like lava coming out the top!”
“It looks like a volcano!”

We had great fun talking about why it was bubbling over and predicting what would happen each time we added more vinegar.
