Make a Lava Lamp
Lava Lamp Materials (affiliate links provided)
- Fill the jar you are using 3/4 of the way with baby oil, and then add water until the jar is almost full but not all the way filled. Then add several drops of food coloring
- Then wait for things to settle. The food coloring will mix into the water and settle at the bottom after a few moments. Once the water is settled it is time to make the lava lamp bubble and FIZZ
- Have little ones break Alka Seltzer tablets into pieces and slowly drop them in. They can add more or less to create different effects.
So incredibly FUN!
For all the best Kid Activities
Rosie and Jewel added so much Alka Seltzer that the lava lamp started to fizzle over. The girls thought that was the coolest thing!
Make A Lava Lamp
SUPER Simple Fun!
A Few Tips: You can find generic Alka Seltzer at the Dollar Tree. You may want to keep paper towels close by in case your kids add a lot of Alka Seltzer at once like Rosie and Jewel did. You can also keep the lava lamp set up and return to the fun later. We still have ours.
