Homemade Volcano Project

There are days when I feel like I am bad at everything I do. There are also days when I feel like I am the man! Last Friday was one of those good days. I had a dinner date with Franco. The food was so-so but the entertainment was great. We discovered this band, Big Bash. They play late 70’s music. Normally, I don’t appreciate music that’s not from my era but band was so good that the crowd was singing with them. The lead singer, Boy, a charming man in his 50’s, went to our table during the break and chatted with us. I requested for a VST song and they played two. Until today, the song Manila, Manila, I keep coming back to Manila.., is still playing in my head. If you want to watch them, they play at Richmonde Hotel every Friday night.

At work, I am finally having some rhythm. I promised myself that on Mondays and Tuesdays, I will play the role of  a good mom and go home early. On Wednesdays and Thursdays, I am a good employee. On these days and only on these days, do I wholeheartedly render overtime. By the way, we still need a lot of Recruitment Assistants, if you know of someone who might  be interested, let me know.

At home, that Friday morning, I was able to finally finish Aki’s concept book. I have been looking for pictures of things that start with X and Z. I found the pictures of a xylophone, a zebra and a zigzag in one of old Smart Parenting magazines. Being a collector of magazines, it pains me to cut a page but I did not have a choice.  I asked Ate to look for pictures of a xylophone and x-ray but what she got me were pictures of a cellphone!  On the bright side, I saw this quick and easy activity on the same magazine. We did this project before I left for work.

The first thing that you need is a curious kid who is into volcanoes.

Because we did this activity many times last Friday and Saturday, I know that this is the best set up. Vinegar on a super small bowl. I used a puto mold. I placed the baking soda on a puto mold too. I elevated it by putting it on a small cup which I placed in a bowl for easier clean up. You can put food coloring on the vinegar but that is optional.

Simply pour the vinegar into the baking soda cup and watch magic/science happen before your very eyes.

That was really fun. I am sure if we did not run out of vinegar, we probably spent last Sunday making volcanoes too.

Happy Monday!
