Fall Activity for Kids {Apple Volcanoes}


Today we are falling into more sensory play alongside Vicky from Mess for Less.  We kicked off this fun Fall activities series with pumpkin themed fun.  Vicky and her girls made pumpkin sensory pies and we made a silly pumpkin putty.  Today, we are both sharing fun apple themed activities.

While Vicky had fun exploring apples and art we tried bringing apples and Science together with this silly little experiment.  I wish I could take credit for this activity, but this was all Rosie's idea.  Last year we made erupting pumpkins and she has been intrigued to try making other things erupt ever since.  So, we hallowed out a few apples to try our hand at making erupting apple volcanoes.

I set Rosie up with her own little mixing lab so she could go to work making the perfect erupting apple volcanoes. Naturally, if you are going to make apples erupt the eruptions should be apple scented, right?  

What we Used:
  • Apples
  • Baking soda
  • Vinegar
  • Apple pie spice
  • Cinnamon
  • Red & Green food coloring (you could also use washable liquid watercolors)
Rosie had so much fun mixing and concocting the ingredients.  First, she mixed a bit of the spices into the baking soda to give us apple scented baking soda.  She then mixed a bit of food coloring into the vinegar, alternating between red and green

Rosie had so much fun with this silly Fall experiment.  She made the apples erupt over and over again.  Then she had a blast making BIG bubbling apple eruptions in her mixing cups
