Summer Reading FUN!
Our family has been participating in our local library’s Family Scavenger Hunt as part of the Summer Reading Program. One of our recent projects was to make a homemade lava lamp. It was an easy project that was fun and opened up an exciting opportunity to teach them some science.
To Make Your Own Lava Lamp
1 plastic clear bottle (we used a old 20-ounce pop bottle)
Fill the bottle nearly to the top with cooking oil and add a few drops of your choice of color of food coloring. Drop in one tablet, screw on the top of the bottle and watch our own lava lamp.
