Instructions for Volcano Experiment
Pour baking soda and confetti into a container.
Add red food coloring to a bit of distilled vinegar.
Then, watch as your experiment “explodes” when you add the vinegar to baking soda!
My young child had a lot of fun watching this experiment over and over. His favorite part was watching the container overflow, of course!
