Volcanic Island – High Kirk Playgroup

September 5, 2013

High Kirk Playgroup recently built a Volcanic Island. The children of High Kirk Playgroup had great fun and even the adults had a great time making and painting the Volcano.

The best bit is that our Volcanic Island actually erupted and we all enjoyed watching it in action.

To Make our Volcanic Island we used:

  • Paper Mache. We used two parts PVA glue to one part water
  • Lots of newspapers
  • A large square of cardboard for the base
  • A large plastic bottle in the centre to form the Volcano.

Place the bottle in the centre of the cardboard base and paste the newspapers around it to build the mountain.

When the volcano is painted and dry add to the bottle baking soda, washing up liquid, red food colouring and vinegar into the bottle to make it erupt!

We all had a great day making our Volcanic Island at High Kirk Playgroup.
