How to Make a Snow Volcano
Making a snow volcano is really easy, and Rosie and Jewel had so much fun!
Snow Volcano Materials
- A cup or plastic bottle from recycling
- Baking soda
- Food coloring or liquid watercolors
To make a snow volcano you will first need snow. We have had an abundance here lately, so we were good to go. To form our volcano I took a plastic cup and set it on the ground in the snow. Then I piled snow up and around the cup to form the volcano
I recommend packing the snow tightly around the cup to help the volcano hold it's shape during play. Once the volcano is formed have kids add baking soda and a few drops of food coloring or washable watercolors to the cup which is now acting as the volcanoes core
Now it is time to make it erupt! Have kids pour in vinegar and then step back
An erupting snow volcano! How FUN!
Rosie and Jewel loved their snow volcano and delighted in making it erupt over and over again!
Making a snow volcano is such a fun way to play in the snow while also exploring a bit of magical Science.
