How to make your own erupting volcano

This erupting volcano makes a perfect landscape for your toy dinosaurs, both before and after the eruption.

All you need to make this is:

• A small bottle
• Bicarbonate of soda
• Vinegar
• Water
• Washing up liquid
• Red food colouring
• Some sand
• A few small rocks

The Lava
All you need to do is half fill the bottle with water, and add about 5 heaped teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda, a squirt of washing up liquid and a dash of red food colouring. Give this a good mix.

The Volcano
Place the bottle down where you would like the centre of your volcano, and pile up the sand around it, up to the neck of the bottle.

Place some small stones or rocks around the volcano, and add your toy dinosaurs if you wish.

The Eruption
When you are ready for the grand event, simply pour the vinegar into the bottle right up to the top and enjoy as the molten lava flows down the volcano!
