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)

Food coloring

Cooking oil

Effervescent tablets

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.
