We love making volcanoes especially our snow volcano, but as we’ve not had much snow recently I’ve had to start making them again. This method is quite quick and inexpensive and means you can reuse the volcano a few times.
How to make a volcano
What you need:
Brown, red, green and yellow paint
Art roc or mod roc
Small plastic bottle
Red food colouring
Place your bottle or container on a sheet of cardboard and roll and sellotape newspaper around it in a volcano shape.
Cover with mod roc or art roc and leave to dry.
Once dry, it should be very hard. Paint and leave to dry again.
Cover with cling film and you’re ready to go.
Follow these instructions to make your volcano erupt.
When you’re finished, just remove the clingfilm, leave to dry and start again.
