DIY: Lava Lamp

Derek Kawakami, the Mayor of Kauai, has been posting entertaining how-to videos on Instagram TV, to "break the boredom" during this shelter-in-place order.  Today we tried to make a lava lamp following his video demonstration and it was a hit with the boys!

Here's how to make your own at home:

Add water to a clear glass bottle or vase with water - fill the bottle about 1/5 full.

Add oil (tip the jar so that the oil is added slowly to the water but doesn't "mix" in with the water (the oil will sit on top of the water). Leave some room at the top.

Add approximately 8-10 drops food coloring

Drop two effervescent tabs of Alka Seltzer into the mixture.

Watch the lava erupt!
