First of all, place your volcano on a sturdy surface. The best place for this is outside or on a hard surface that is easy to clean, just in case your volcano erupts more than you want it to. Now gather together the supplies you need to make the eruption:
Ingreidents Needed:
  • 1 Tablespoon Warm Water
  • Liquid Dish Washing Soap
  • Food Coloring
  • 1 Tablespoon of Baking Soda
  • Vinegar
  • Small, Paper Cup

Start off by measuring the water into your volcano crater (the bottle). Add 3 to 4 drops of dish washing soap and 3 to 4 drops of food coloring. Stir in the baking soda. Pour some vinegar into the small, paper cup so the cup is about 1/3 full. Quickly pour the vinegar into your volcano crater, step back, and watch your volcano's bubbly eruption!
