We prepared our materials: a bottle, food colouring, sunflower oil and salt. Then we filled 3/4of the bottle with water and the rest with sunflower oil. Added some salt and food colouring.Then Defne enjoyed shaking it.
To make it a bit sparkly we added some glitter,too.She is still a bit young, but we talked about how oil and water do not mix. For an better effect we later added a few alka seltzer tablets. This got her very excited indeed.
Great fun as little ones LOVE watching the bubbles emerging in the bottle.
For a real lava lamp effect, shine a flashlight through the bottom of the bottle.
Happily shared with The Play Academy, Get Crafty. Preschool Corner, It's Playtime and Something for the weekend.
