Lava Lamp

Today we made a cool Lava Lamp. Simple and fun all at the same time.

Materials:
Plastic bottle....water bottle.
Veg. Oil
Water
Food coloring
Alka Seltzer

How to:
Pour Oil in first we used about 2 cups, then pour water we used about 1 cup.....you want more oil than water. Then food coloring, maybe 3-4 drops.....Jake went alittle color happy. Then cut or brake Alka Seltzer in to 4-5 pieces and drop in and watch the lava rise. Jake thought this was too cool.

  1. Does the color continuously flow? Like a regular lava lamp?

  3. Do you put all the Alka Seltzer in one bottle, all the pieces of one tablet just broken up?

  7. I am always looking for new and cool things to do with my 2yr old since I am a stay at home mom and this looks like so much fun..I was wondering what would happen if you added glow in the dark paint or something like that to kinda make it a night lamp...just a thought..
