Insanity Strikes Mom

Volcano Experiment

1) Place the baking pan on the grass, and set the soda bottle in the center of the pan.

2) Mound and shape the most soil around the bottle to form a mountain. Bring the soil right up to the top of the bottle's opening but don't get soil in the bottle.

3) Pour 1 T. baking soda into the bottle.

4) Color 1 cup vinegar with the red food coloring.

5) Pour the colored vinegar into the bottle. Stand back and watch red form spray out the top and down the mountain of dirt, like lava from a volcano.

Take the above experiment. Modify to be used in a 16 oz water bottle on the kitchen floor. Have a Mom with only 2 hours sleep. Screw up the amounts... interesting red mess on the floor. BTW, I must remember that vinegar stings really really bad on cuts. And the red food coloring makes for an interesting look to the cut. Can't wait to see if any of the mothers notice my hands tomorrow today when I drop Tater off at school.

I used to do that all the time when I was younger. We also used someinteresting amounts to make a water rocket fly really high.
