Volcano Fun


I made some clear gelatin and put it in a yogurt container. When it was set I gently squeezed it out. This is supposed to look like a volcano? anyway she injects the food coloring into the gelatin to look like lava.
WARNING: THIS IS NOT AN ACTIVITY YOU WANT TO TRY IF YOU ARE NOT O.K. WITH MESS!!!
The result of red food coloring is red hands! We did this yesterday and her hands are still pinkish.

Her determined face

She thought this was a lot of fun. However, the activity didn't last long as Jada is not the most gentle toddler and ripped the top off the volcano.
This is an activity I will do again when she is a bit older. I think the gelatin would be so cool to have in a sensory bin. Especially for toddlers who love to squish their fingers into messy stuff. Summer activity for sure!
