Easy DIY Lava Lamp



Are you looking forward to a long, hot summer with the kids at home?

Science experiments are a fun way to fill some time. Especially those that can be created outside with water!

This easy DIY lava lamp project is basic enough for kids to make on their own, or get some older children to help the little ones. Set them up outside with everything they need and let them at it!

Step 1: Materials

- 1 empty water bottle

- Oil

- Water

- Food Colouring

Step 2:

Fill the bottle 3/4 full with oil

Step 3:

Fill it the rest of the way with water

Step 4:

Step 5:

Make sure the lid is on tight and shake the bottle to mix the dye with the oil and water.

Watch the bubbles separate as they float to the bottom again.
