First, we made our favorite play-doh recipe:
1 cup salt
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cups water
2 tablespoons oil
Yes, I let them do it all the measuring hehe and the pouring as you can see.:)
Next time, I'm thinking of making mud-dough!
Next, we built our model Volcano.
We used an old cookie sheet as a base and an cleaned empty Organic Ragu Bottle as the vessel to build our Valcano around. Then we covered it in old tin foil scraps and our play-doh!
We filled the jar nearly full with warm water, added 6 drops of dish soap, 3 Tablespoons of Baking Soda, and red food coloring. Then the slowly poured in the vinegar.
*We added a bit more baking soda then the Weather Wiz Kids Recipe primarily because we used a different container type.
The Result was foamy and fabulous!!
And of coarse we learned our sign for Volcano along the way. We used the first demonstration seen on Signing Savvy. While it's a bit complex I find it's very identifiable and the kiddos love it. http://www.signingsavvy.com/sign/VOLCANO
