    Lava Lamps -Summer Fun- I found a fun, cheap, and easy project in Family Fun magazine about making Lava Lamps with things you already have in your house. You will need 3 empty water bottles ( I don't normally buy this kind of water, but they make pretty lava lamps with the lids on), food coloring, vegetable oil, and alka seltzer. Fill each bottle a little more than half with oil: Then fill the rest of the way with water.  Leave about an inch at the top: Now add 10 drops of food coloring:   Break your Alka Seltzer into 4 pieces: and drop them in one piece at a time.  Wait until the first piece stops bubbling before you drop in the next.  If too many go in, you solution gets all cloudy.  Don't worry, he's not hurt.  The band-aid is merely decorative...as is the tattoo.  Match those up with the black socks pulled to the knees he likes to wear, and I have got quite a little ladies man! and watch the magic happen... over...and over...and over again. We had so much fun with these.  If you have any other summer fun ideas, please post a link.  I would love more ideas!

    Homemade lava lamps. Vegetable oil, a about 3/4th of the water bottle, then water. 10 drops of food coloring. Then take a alkaseltzer tab and break it into 4 pieces. Drop one in at a time and wait for each to dissolve! Hmmm - this and the density one for a kid craft?
