Today we are going to make a snow volcano! We are going to pile up a heap of snow around a small glass jar or plastic cup,, add the ingredients for the baking soda and vinegar reaction and stand back to watch the snow volcano erupt!
WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE A SNOW VOLCANO ERUPTION
2 spoonfuls of baking soda (bicarbonate of soda)
1 spoonful washing up liquid
a few drops of red food colouring
30 ml vinegar
Small container (e.g. glass jar or plastic cup)
1. Add everything except the vinegar to the container.
2. Carefully shape a volcano shape around the container using snow.
3. Stand back, get ready……add the vinegar and watch the eruption!
If it doesn’t work so well, add a bit more washing up liquid and vinegar and give it a good stir.
