Mix baking soda and paint together along with a small amount of dish soap. This will help the volcano erupt slower, making the project last longer. Add a touch of water if the mixture is too thick. Pour the mixture into the beaker.
Check out the Earth’s Layers science project to make a simple model. Also check out this Earth Cross-Section Model as a helpful visual way to teach kids about earth’s layers. How Volcanoes Are Formed. A volcano is formed when there is a crack or hole in the crust, called a vent. The temperature in the deeper layers of the earth sometimes.
Kids crafts with paper mache ideas are so much fun. Like this super cool erupting paper mache volcano project.
