We made a lava lamp with Defne last week.

 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.

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.
