  • You now have a candy corn volcano!

Making Your Candy Corn Volcano Erupt

  • If color is desired have kids add several drops of food coloring at this time.
  • Place the funnel over top of the container.
  • Then, have kids squirt vinegar into the narrow opening of the funnel and quickly step back!

  • As the baking soda and vinegar mix inside of the funnel they will react, causing a bubbling explosion to erupt from the candy corn volcano.
