Mini Volcanos on a Rainy Day

Here is the other activity we did this past Monday.  They are little mini volcanoes which I originally saw on pinterest using a big pile of baking soda on a single baking sheet.  Then a cousin of mine did them before Christmas and she was the genius behind using the muffin pans.  We have done these a few times in the past and Ava loves them every time.  This is one that doesn't get old.

Supplies Needed:

Baking Soda
Food Coloring
Muffin Tins
Medicine Dropper

 On the left side of every tin I added about two tablespoons of baking soda to each.  I just eyed it so some may have more than others.  Then on the right I added about the same amount of vinegar.
 I then dyed the vinegar.  I used wilton gels hence the toothpicks :)

 Once it's all mixed I just give her a tray and let her have at it.  When she is ready for another she normally just asks.

This is super easy to set up and recreate over and over again.  Bubbles, color, fizzing, fun!!!
