Rosie and Jewel love to experiment with volcano science.
We have made snow volcanoes.  We have made beach volcanoes, and we have even made sound volcanoes.  Today, we wanted to see if we could make glow-in-the-dark volcanoes, and the results were absolutely amazing!  Read on for the easy tutorial.

What could be more fun than a glowing rainbow?  To my kids not much!  We absolutely LOVED this activity!  We made so many eruptions, each one was more beautiful than the next.  Are you ready to make a fizzy, glowing rainbow?

  • It is now time to add the vinegar!

Glowing Rainbow Eruptions

  • Have kids slowly pour vinegar into the colorful containers of baking soda.  
  • Then, step back and watch as amazing glowing volcanoes erupt before your eyes!

They played and played until we eventually moved onto the next bit of wow.  

Glowing Rainbow Volcano

Extend the fun and make a glowing rainbow volcano!
  • Add roughly 1 cup of baking soda to a large bowl or container.
  • Add neon paint to the bowl, using 2-3 drops of paint for each color of the rainbow

Rosie and Jewel did this again and again, making glowing rainbows until we were all out of supplies!

A Few Tips:
  • For an even brighter effect try stirring varying colors of neon paint into cups of vinegar.  Then, pour the glowing vinegar into bowls of baking soda!
  • Add a squirt of dish soap to make the volcanic eruptions move slower and last even longer.
