The Muslim Homeschooler Erupts



The volcano was a success! I didn't really think it would go so smoothly but it was great. The baby was sleeping, AlhamduLILLAH and was just waking after we finished. We used baking soda, a couple of drops of dish-washing liquid, glitter, yellow food coloring (was out of red), tape, felt, Play-doh, a pizza box, a jar, wads of paper to hold the jar steady, green paper, poster board for the mountain, and roses, lol. Notice the goggles? My daughter didn't want the lava to get into her eyes.

As salaam alaikum,

Maashaa Allah, how fun! We did this several years ago, but the eruption took place outside, lol.

lol, it was too cold to go outside (it snowed last night)! It was the first of this season but it was pretty light.

Take care,

It was fun and I'm glad that it worked to their satisfaction. Now, they want to make an earthquake, lol.

Take care,
