How to Make a Candy Corn Volcano

What would Halloween be without those silly striped candy corns?  I have had lots of fun incorporating them into our October play.  If you missed our other candy corn activities be sure to check out candy corn goop, cloud dough, and puffy paint.  This next activity was really simple to set up, and Rosie had so much fun with it.

A Fun Fall Science Activity for Kids

Making a candy corn volcano is really easy and lots of FUN!

Materials
Method
We used store bought play dough for this activity, but you could also make your own.  I bought three containers of Play-Doh from Walmart for under $2.  They sell the canisters individually.  You will also need a funnel (or make one using aluminum foil)

We used a funnel this time, and it worked well,  but next time I would use an object with a slightly larger opening.  Making the candy corn volcano is really simple.  All you have to do is roll the play dough really thin and then wrap it around the funnel, covering the bottom with yellow, the middle with orange, and the top with white

You will also need baking soda and a squirt bottle of vinegar.

We used one of the empty Play-Doh canisters to hold our baking soda, and this worked great.  It fit perfectly under the funnel and came almost to the bottom of the spout underneath, allowing the "lava" to spew out.

Rosie loved making her candy corn volcano erupt

She had lots of fun playing scientist and concocting her eruptions. She added glitter to her baking soda to make sparkly eruptions, too!

 You could also add food coloring to make the candy corn eruptions colorful.  We didn't this time, but next time we definitely will.
