Lemon Volcano Experiment

Updated: Mar 11, 2021

Instead of using the tradition ingredients for a volcano like hydrogen peroxide, decided to go this route with the lemon and baking soda. It does not make a huge "explosion" but it is just enough for a toddler to get excited. Also, using different and fun colors help as well. 


Ingredients used:

  • Lemon

  • Lemon juice

  • Food coloring

  • Dish Detergent (not required)

  • Baking soda

  • Paper towels

  • Old grocery bag

  • Flat tray
