Hot Hot Lava

David has become obsessed with volcanos and dinosaurs and talks about them nonstop.  
When it was time to leave school today, all he could talk about was volcanos and the lava catching him on fire.  The only way I could get him to agree to go home was to promise to make him a volcano...so what did we do?
We put play dough around a tall glass, put baking soda in the glass.
Filled a measuring cup with vinegar and red food coloring and...

red/orange hot lava was the result! He was so excited to see it come over the side.

Thinking we will be making more of these in the future!
