Smithsonian volcano project

I picked this up at Walmart for $5, perfect timing as Bug hunter had been asking to make a volcano after spotting a kit at Books a Million

While it was being built we had a NOVA documentary on, courtesy of Netflix. My handy dandy homeschool helper.

As with nearly any project like this, they NEVER include enough paint to make the finished product look like the one of the box. No problem, out came our box of paints and we pushed on. DSCN0589DSCN0590

I didn’t get pictures of the eruption because I was the one pouring the vinegar but it went over GREAT! The girls had a blast.

Later in the afternoon the Bug Hunter became engrossed in her library book.DSCN0591
