Homemade Lava Lamps

Water bottle bubble blower, what a great idea!

Gorgeous!! Make crystal names in a jar. Such a pretty science experiment and name activity in one.

plastic bottle + vegetable oil (half fill the bottle) + water (fill the rest of the bottle + 10 drops food coloring + alka-seltzer (broken into pieces, placed 1 at a time into the bottle) = lava bottle

This looks too COOL - Oil, water, food coloring, and paper = easy art

How to Make Your Own Colorful Sand

Lava Lamp: Add some food color to a cup of water. Then fill a vase with 3/4 full vegetable oil. Next add colored water to the vase leaving 1 inch to the top. Break an alka seltzer into tiny pieces and drop them in one piece at a time & watch your lava lamp come to life. You can also take it into a dark room and put a flashlight underneath. X

Fill a cup with water and put shaving cream on top to act as a cloud. Explain to students that when clouds get really heavy with water, it starts to rain. Add some blue food coloring drops to the top of the shaving cream and watch it start to rain!

Science fair experiments.. Because you never know when your kid will need an idea

Celery Coloring experiment: My son was eager to use a plastic pipette he had (what is it about kids and water play?), so we decided to do a simple science experiment. By dipping celery stalks in colored water, you can literally see water traveling up the celery!
