The volcano

Pour the coloured vinegar into the test tube positioned under the pot. The test tube contains baking soda.

Voila! Charlie narrates, as the villagers run for their lives. Oh yeah. Nothin' like being a 6-year-old boy!


  1. Lol! That experiment is a rite of passage for children all over the world! Although my girls were 9 or 10 when they did it - and had to make an actual framework for the volcano (what a nightmare.. for ME). The pot is a much more sensible idea!

  2. I remember doing this for a science class!! We papier mached a volcano and I recall it being the best thing ever :P

  3. I've done this with students - too much fun!
