Playdough Volcanoes

It's summer vacation!  I've been really lucky to have a bunch of vacation and overtime to use, so I have had a lot of time off so far this summer.  On the days that I have been working, my kids have been at daycare and day camps.  Our oldest came home one day all excited about the Playdough Volcanoes that he made at camp one day, so of course, we had to give it a try.  I know, I am straying from my usual recipes, but this was so fun, and our kids were just amazed by this.  And it's so easy!

Have your kids create a volcano out of playdough.  Let them have creative

reign, their little minds and what they create is always so awesome.  Be sure that they create the crater in the centre of the volcano, and if they want to "dress up" their volcanoes with trees and other fun, encourage it! (I am all about encouraging kids to be creative).  Also, make sure you use a spill proof base for the volcano, such as a paper plate or a cookie sheet.

Once the volcanoes are built, it's time for the adult to help out.  You'll need:

Baking Soda
1/2 to 1 cup of white vinegar
Food colouring

Pour the vinegar into a measuring cup, add in your selected colour of food colouring.  Mix well.

In the volcano, pour in some baking soda.  A couple teaspoons should do you.

When the kids are ready, pour the coloured vinegar into the volcano crater. 


PS, did you know that you can make you own playdough?

  1. Oh my goodness, the kiddos will go crazy over this. I'm going to tuck this activity in my back pocket for the next rainy day.
