Lovely Little Lava Lamps

“People who don’t think

probably don’t have Brains; rather,

they have gray fluff

that’s blown into their heads by mistake.”

journal entry:

I’m afraid it is true.  Lava lamps are never going away.  After the Sunday dinner was cleared away, we made Lava Lamps. The idea came from the April issue of Family Fun Magazine.
This is what we needed:
  • empty 20 ounce plastic water or soda bottles
  • vegetable oil
  • tap water
  • food coloring
  • Alka Seltzer tablets
This is what we did:
  • found a funnel
  • filled each bottle half full of vegetable oil
  • added tap water to within one inch of the top
  • carefully and slowly added 10 drops of food coloring (any color or combination)
  • broke up an Alka Seltzer tablet
  • added small pieces of the tablet until the bubbles started rising in the bottle
  • put the cap on when we were finished
  • SENT THE BOTTLES HOME WITH OUR GRANDCHILDREN !
