Make your own Volcano

It is so easy to make your own Volcano and the kids will love it.

Things can get a little messy… but that is the fun part!

See how to make your own with household ingredients below.


When forming the volcano I used my homemade play dough recipe for the bottom of the volcano and fossil play dough for the top of the volcano.

When forming the volcano make a dome shape and make a hole in the center to hold a small cup or plastic cup.


To make your volcanic “explosion” you will need:

Baking Soda and Vinegar

Red Food Coloring is optional but add more drama

Pop Rocks are optional but will add the sizzle and cracking sound for more drama


Put Baking Soda inside the cup


Then pour in the vinegar with or without the red food coloring and see what happens…

Mia loved the volcanic explosion and did not want to stop doing it.

That is a successful science experiment to me!
