Volcano Alert!

Friday was volcano day in Leia's 2nd grade class, 
 
so Leanne and I got up early (early for me, anyway) and headed over to watch the fun. 
 
So many different types and styles of volcano - some of these parents kids put a lot of work into this project. 
 
I think Leia's was the prettiest with its tiny dinosaurs, paper mache and red sparkly pipe-cleaners (yes, I'm biased.)
   
One of the parents went around to each volcano and poured in a vinegar solution (the baking soda had already been added in the classroom). He overdid the first one and the reaction was spectacular - bubbles and foam shooting out the top and over the sides. The kids loved it.
  
The kids reacted to each of the 24 explosions like it was the first time they'd seen it - lots of shouting, clapping and laughing. Great way to celebrate the last school day before Spring break!
