Homemade Volcanoes

Ethan Sky has been interested in volcanoes lately. I found an EYEWITNESS movie on them, at the library. Ethan has watched it about 5 times now. We made the inner part of a volcano today, following the directions from this website. http://www.mbmg.mtech.edu/kids/make_a_volcano.htm We had tried this before and we were not successful. Apparently dish soap is the miracle in making it truly erupt. We will attempt making the actual mountain another day.


  1. Sounds like a great homeschool day! :)

  2. I'm considering homeschooling. I have 3 kids, the middle one has CF. The oldest would be TOUGH to homeschool as it seems he is bored SO easy and has no interest in reading or schoolwork when I try teaching him anything. My CF daughter would love it. Any advice for me? The alternative is Private Christian school where my husband is a teacher and we get half off the cost but all the germs and infections are what scare me. I'd love to chat over email...maressaconover@gmail.com
