Summer is here and kids are playing outside. However, during certain parts of the day, it can be unbearable to be outside because of the heat. It is very hot outside during these times. Therefore many parents are looking for indoor activities for their children. Doing hands-on projects inside the home is a great alternative to watching electronics all day.
Today my son and I will show you how to make a volcano at home. We were learning about rocks made from volcanos. My son thought it would be fun to create our own volcano, which is what we did.
Like most of our projects, it is easy and fun to do. You most likely have all the ingredients in your kitchen for this project.
I will admit that I should have made my son wear goggles while doing this project. Please ensure your kids are wearing eye protection while making the lava for the volcano.
