Lava Lamp Experiment

Materials 
    Method
    • Begin by filling the jar that 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.

    • The food coloring will mix into the water and settle at the bottom of the jar after a few moments.  
    • Once the water is settled it is time to make the lava lamp bubble and FIZZ!

    • Have kids break Alka-Seltzer tablets into 3-4 pieces and slowly drop them into the jar.  
    • As they do this the lava lamp will react, with more bubbles forming as more alka-seltzer is added.

    My girls thought this was the coolest thing!    
    Kids can make their lava lamp bubble & fizz over & over again, too!  My girls played & played, making lava lamps in several different colors before eventually running out of antacids.  

    A Few Tips:  
    • You can save a little money by using generic alka-seltzer.  You can find it at the dollar store as well as online here.  
    • You can also keep the lava lamp set up and return to the fun throughout the day.  
    • We buy our baby oil & our food coloring from the dollar store.
