Watch gases come to life in liquid and mimic the amazing lava lamps we all love! This experiment is like creating your very own safe and fun chemistry lab and can be completed at home or in the classroom... with adult supervision of course!
What you will need:
- Vegetable Oil
- CleverPatch™ Liquid Watercolour
- Glass Jar or Plastic Jar
- Effervescent tablets
Step One - Add colour to your jar
Put a few drops of coloured liquid watercolour in the bottom of your glass jar. Fill your jar a third of the way with water and then sprinkle in some glitter.
Step Two - Add the oil
Top up your jar with oil, filling it almost the whole way.
Step Three - Make the Lava!
Get ready... Once you drop in the effervescent tablet, the fun will begin! Carefully drop the tablet into the jar – once it hits the coloured water, it will create a gas, pushing the water up through the oil and resembling a lava lamp!
