How to Make a Homemade Volcano Project Your Kids Will Love.

An erupting volcano project was the goal, so now that we decided how to make a volcano there are several ways to make it erupt.

Did you know that there are around 1,510 active volcanoes in the world, and we currently know that more than 80 of these are under the sea! Volcanoes act like pressure valves, when too much pressure builds below the Earth's crust it is released in the form of magma and lava. Why not have a go at replicating your own mini volcanic eruption with this clay volcano, which uses a chemical reaction.

How to Make a Paper Mache Volcano - Persil.

Cover the cone with plaster of paris make sure you plaster it all the way down to the base adding extra support for the cone. Try and make sure that you don't get any in the cup. Let the cone dry completely. Once it is dry you can begin Painting and decorating the cone to look like a real volcano.

It has a wood frame with chicken wire covered with brown craft paper to give a rocky look. Paint some lava down the side and add some plastic plants and you have it. Leave a hole at the top for a pan of water with hot ice in it to look like smoke or use a CO2 fire.Start by making the cone of your baking soda volcano by mixing 6 cups flour, 2 cups salt, 4 tablespoons cooking oil, and 2 cups of water. The resulting mixture should be smooth and firm (add more water if needed).; Stand the soda bottle in the baking pan and mold the dough around it to form a volcano shape. Be sure not to cover the hole or drop dough inside the bottle.

How to play Make A Volcano: Chemistry - In a tall jug (clear is best) put in 100ml of vinegar and drop in a TBSN of baking powder - and watch the volcano erupt!Watch as a chemical reaction happens right in front of your eyes! Baking soda (base) and Vinegar (acid) react releasing gas (CO2) causing an eruption! Fill a water bottle a third full.
