Materials

Method:
  • Have kids mix 1/2 pack of Pop Rocks into 1/2 cup of baking soda.
  • Add the baking soda mixture to your volcano or bowl.
  • Give kids one cup of vinegar.  Have kids color the vinegar using food coloring if desired.  Then, have them slowly pour the vinegar into the volcano.

Our sound volcano exploded with sound for a few minutes!  I was quite impressed by how long the Pop Rocks lasted.
