Make Your Own Volcano Model at Home

If you want a fun and simple science experiment to try at home with your child, here is a neat and easy way to make a model of a volcano erupting! I love homemade science experiments with everyday ingredients and objects around the house. 

What you will need:

1. One 8 oz glass
2. Plate or bowl to catch the eruption
3. Vinegar 
4. 4 tsp colored gelatin powder 
5. 2 tsp baking soda

Place the glass in a bowl or plate. Fill the glass 2/3 full with vinegar. Add the gelatin powder and mix. Add the baking soda and watch the volcano erupt! This is a fun way to get kids to measure out ingredients, too!
