We walked in the door and she insisted we get started right away. Thankfully I had already scouted out plans for making a volcano at home.
First we made some salt dough...squish, squish
And then we formed the salt dough around a baby food jar (we used a stage 2 one that is taller). We made the volcano inside a baking pan, to avoid an overflow mess later.
Next we started adding ingredients. First we put a little water in the jar. Then added some food coloring (red of course). Then we added a few drops of dishwasher detergent because I had read this made a pretty cool effect. Here we are ready to make the explosion!
