Lava Lamp

It's getting a bit dark outside don't you think? Wait a second, I have an idea! Why don't we create a lava lamp!! This would definitely brighten up our day. So let's start.

In order to create your lava lamp you would need: An empty, clear bottle (with lid), vegetable or mineral oil, food colouring, glitter (optional) and effervescent tablets (table salt can work instead).

  1. Start by adding your vegetable/mineral oil into the bottle until it is 3 quarters full. 
  2. Fill the rest of the bottle with water but leave a space at the top so it doesn't overflow.
  3. Then add a few drops of food colour, of your choice.
  4. Now you can add any glitter to make it more appealing.
  5. Next we are going add our effervescent tablets, broken in small bits or salt.
  6. Just watch the oil rise in small drops as you add it in.
  7. Continue adding the broken tablets or salt until it has all dissolved.
  8. Finally put the lid on and shake it slowly until the oil mixes and the bubbles form.
  9. Now just sit back and relax as it comes into action.

Wow! I placed the lava lamp in my room and it worked out great. 😜
