Create a Dinosaur Volcano Small World.
Baking soda science experiments are always fun and filled with learning opportunities.
Hooray for erupting dinosaur volcanos with baking soda science! A perfect experiment for a rainy afternoon. I wanted a neat science activity for our dinosaur week. I picked a dinosaur volcano experiment with messy sensory play. 123 Homeschool 4 Me did this type of bin (click here). I thought the dinosaur volcano sensory bin would be perfect for us.
Simple and quick dinosaur volcano set up!
To make the dinosaur volcano, I filled a salad dressing bottle, with warm water and red food coloring. I left a couple inches empty toward the top. I also add about 5 drops of dish detergent. I like to use containers that have a narrow opening to really achieve a nice volcano effect We smooshed homemade play dough around the bottle. Use whatever you like, paint it, or make it bigger!
He poured a box of baking soda into the bin and helped me spread it around. Then we placed the dinosaur volcano and a pool of blue vinegar in the bin as well. This extended the activity with more fizzing action. He arranged his dinosaurs and rocks. We even sprinkled some italian seasonings for their food!
