This is most easy peasy apple volcano you’re ever going to make – and – it’s fun for all ages. Our kiddos ranged from 2 to 14 and every one of them had a blast. All puns intended.
- Apples – the bigger the better
- Baking Soda
- Food Coloring (Optional)

Step Three: Put a drop or two of food coloring on top of the baking soda.
Step Four: Slowly pour vinegar over the baking soda in the center of the apple.
