Apple Volcanoes Experiment

Last year we made erupting pumpkins, and my kids have been intrigued to try making other things erupt ever since.  So, we hallowed out a few apples today and tried our hand at making erupting apple volcanoes.

Materials:
  Optional additions
The experiment:
My girls began by mixing and concocting the ingredients.  First, they mixed a bit of the pie spice into the baking soda to give us apple scented baking soda.  Then, they mixed a bit of watercolors into the vinegar, alternating between red and green for each eruption

Then they added a bit of baking soda to the cored apples and poured in a bit of vinegar.  And then they watched the apple volcanoes ERUPT!  Over & over again!

My girls had so much fun with this silly, Fall experiment.  They made the apples erupt over and over again and then had a blast making big, bubbling eruptions in the mixing cups

They continued to play Scientists until all the vinegar we had on hand was gone
