We've been studying volcanoes for several weeks: reading books, watching Bill Nye the Science Guy videos about volcanoes and the earth's crust. I knew we simply had to erupt our own volcano, because the boys would just love it. And they did.! We spent several days getting ready. One day was spent making the paper mâché volcanoes and another day painting them with lots of dry time in between. At last the day came to make them blow their tops!
What fun! The directions for this project can be found here.
