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
