Day 2 of the week - The theme this week is Kitchen Concoctions!
Project - Lava Lamp. I saw this idea in the April 2010 issue of Family Fun Magazine. Directions: Fill a clear plastic bottle just over halfway with vegetable oil, then add water, to an inch from the top. Add 1o drops of food coloring. Place the bottle on the pie pan to catch potential spills. Cut or break and effervescent antacid tablet in quarters and drop one quarter into the bottle. When the bubbling slows, add another quarter-tablet to get it started again. To store the lamp, let the bottle sit until all the bubbles have completely dispersed. This prevents the buildup of gas in the bottle. Cap it and put it in a safe place to prevent spills. Materials Needed: Clear plastic bottle, vegetable oil, water, food coloring, pie pan, effervescent antacid tablets (Alka-Seltzer)
