Lemon Volcano's

Mixing acid and baking soda never gets old!

O and Baby C were both completely enthralled with this mini chemistry lesson, involving a lemon, dish washing soap, food colouring and baking soda. They especially liked pounding the juice out of the lemon to continue the explosion!

After they pulverized the lemon, I offered a baking tray of soda and eye droppers with coloured vinegar.
The scientists continued their experimentation for another half an hour!

This is a fantastic beginners experiment that includes quick results, observation and hands-on participation.

Time-Lapse from Chile. I admit, we were banking on seeing some lava, but instead an amazing display of volcanic clouds
