Green Kid Crafts delights kids across North America each month with fun and eco-friendly craft and STEAM activities delivered right to their door through our company’s craft subscription box program. Kids are sent a monthly box, which is packed with between 4-6 activity kits designed to foster a child’s creativity and confidence. Each month brings a new theme; past themes have included Mad Scientist, Nocturnal Animals, Around the World, and Outer Space. Our team of kid testers helps design each box as well as the fun activities and projects for our blog like this one!

Rainbow Volcano Science Experiment

- Baking Soda

- Food coloring
Step 1: Add about two tablespoons of baking soda to each jar.
Step 2: Next, add about five or six drops of food coloring to each jar.
Step 3: Finally, we added vinegar to a large mixing/pouring bowl where it will make it easier to pour quickly into each jar.
Step 4: Quickly pour the vinegar into each jar until the reaction is overflowing creating a rainbow volcano of overflowing colors!!
