Snow Volcano - Science Sparks

It's been a while since we've done any science experiments here, but after seeing the snow volcano on Science Sparks last week it would be a shame not to give it a go before the snow disappeared for good.

At Christmas I bought a bottle of Chambord raspberry liquor and once empty (it didn't last long!) I washed the bottle out and left it on the shelf, knowing that it would come in handy one day. It was a perfect size for the volcano, wide at the bottom with a narrow neck.

I added some food colouring (we opted for green), washing up liquid and bicarbonate of soda and the boys then buried it in the snow. I poured vinegar in the bottle, and we waited....

Next time we will need to use more food colouring as the colour wasn't very strong, but apart from that it worked quite well.

For more science experiments pop over to the fabulous Science Sparks
