Volcano Science Experiment

How to make a volcano science experiment with Finlee and MeOur volcano science experiment is a fabulous activity that the kids will love. It has everything most kids love – colour, getting hands on and the end result creates bubbles and fizz. What more could you want? It’s a great activity to do with multiple kids too as each child can have a jar each and use a different colour so they’re all responsible for their own little experiment. You can then compare notes on who’s fizzed more or which colour was more effective.

The Benefits of Making a Volcano Science Experiment

Making a Volcano Science Experiment is a fun and practical activity to do with your kids. They will love the excitement of making an actual erupting volcano without any chemicals. You can use this fun activity to talk about how things work together and how the bi-carb soda is a base and the vinegar is an acid and together they become unstable in water and it creates the fizzing.

Depending on your kid’s age it’s a good opportunity to talk about how some things don’t mix well together too and how you can cause a serious injury/accident by mixing the wrong things together and you especially need to be careful and always make sure you are supervised by an adult.
