Volcano ( It's too GENTLE???)

by - April 01, 2016

Let's throwback to my volcano~

Last Monday, my friends and I build up a VOLCANO! Haha of course it's fake XP

We used many ingredients like flour, salt, bicarbonate of soda, vinegar, food coloring, detergent, plastic bottle and many more. These are all simple ingredients that you can get it at home or groceries.

What are you waiting for? Let's start now!!!

1) Place the plastic bottle on a cardboard or a tray, and use some glue to stick it on the middle of the cardboard.

2) Pour about 3 cups of flour, 3 tablespoon of cooking oil, food coloring (if you want your volcano to have color) and 2 cups of water into a bowl. Mix it all together.

3) Roll the dough until it's smooth and not watery. Place the dough on the plastic bottle and start making the shape of your volcano. Remember to leave a small hole on top of the volcano so that your volcano have "space" to explode.

4) Now you can start to decorating your volcano with leaves and trees, just anything that you like. Be creative!

5) Next, pour warm water, detergent, bicarbonate of soda and food coloring into the volcano. Make sure that your bicarbonate of soda is more enough or else your volcano will not explode.

6) Ready to explode? Pour the vinegar into your volcano and wait for it to explode!!


Vinegar is actually an ethanoic acid ( CH3COOH) while bicarbonate of soda is a base. The eruption of our volcano is because of neutralization process between acid and base. Acid and base will react to produce carbon dioxide gas, which causes the volcano to erupt. The detergent helps your lava to "foam up" and flow.

Bye Bye XOXO
