Day 64... Homemade Lava Lamps

Tonight we made homemade lava lamps. The idea is originally from Family Fun Magazine but I saw a post on Pinterest!! Super easy, inexpensive and the kids loved it!

Ingredients water, oil, food coloring, empty water bottles, and Alka Seltzer Tablets.

Fill the water bottles a little more than half way with oil. Then add water until about an inch from the top. Next add 10 drops of food coloring. Last put in a 1/4 alka seltzer tablet. Wait for the fun to begin!! Once it slows down just add another tablet. FUN!! Four disposable lava lamps for under $5 not bad!
