You Know Those Volcanoes?You know those volcanoes every kid did for a science experiment in school? Well, we did this girly girl glitter volcano today, and I swear my girls thought the tooth fairy was vomiting sparkles! This was so fun, so easy, and so sparkly! Shout out to this great find that you can find here.
Glitter, Glitter Everywhere!
And, I don’t care! The original source uses blue glitter, but since I didn’t have any on hand, we used white and gold. They thought we made our own fireworks! If you follow the steps, and maybe add a little extra glitter (too much glitter is not a real thing), you will create a sparkling masterpiece! Can we say 4th of July sparkler?
A Sparkler For Toddlers
When all the bigger kids are playing with their sparklers this 4th of July, why not try letting your toddler do this instead? Here’s how we did it:
Following the instructions from Preschool Powol Packets, we gathered our materials.
Baking Soda, Red Food Coloring, Glitter, Vinegar, Vase, & Tray
I do recommend a shorter vase if you have one. It took a lot of vinegar to get the glitter to come out of the larger vase.
We added in the baking soda, red food coloring, and glitter! I poured in the vinegar quickly, and “BOOM”, sparkles spewing everywhere!
Oh, and don’t forget the beautiful lava that was leftover!
Try it for fun, for science, or for your 4th of July celebration! Let me know how it goes!
