Introduction: How to Make a Mini Exploding Volcano


Step 1: Ingredients

You will need:
Vinegar
Paper
A piece of cardboard
Tape
Hot glue
An empty pill bottle
Food coloring
Paint (I used water colors)
Baking soda
Flour

 

Step 2: Glue the Pill Bottle Onto the Piece of Cardboard.

Turn your hot glue gun on and wait a few minutes for it to heat up. Then, put some hot glue onto the bottom of the pill bottle and put the bottle in the center of the piece of cardboard.

Step 3: Crumple a Few Pieces of Paper.

Step 4: Arrange the Pieces of Paper Around the Pill Bottle, Then Tape.

Add more paper as needed until it looks like a volcano.

Step 5: Get Flour and Some Water

You will need about a half cup each.

Step 6: Make Paper Mache: Mix Half Flour, Half Water.

You probably will need to add a little extra water. The paper mache shouldn't be too watery or too thick. Paper mache is a type of glue.

Step 7: Rip Up a Lot of Paper.

This will be used with the paper mache.

Step 8: Make the Outside of the Volcano.

Dip one paper strip at a time in the paper mache, removing the excess. Then, put the strips on the volcano until it is completely covered.

Step 9: Let Dry for One Day.

Step 10: Paint.

Step 11: Fill the Pill Bottle Halfway With Baking Soda.

Step 12: Put Food Coloring in a Little Vinegar.

Step 13: Pour the Vinegar in the Volcano, and Watch It Explode!
