This is a simple craft with big effect. You will get disposable shot glasses to make the reaction in. The way I did the reaction is that I put one Tablespoon of Baking Soda in the shot glass. I took a used water bottle and filled it 2/3 the way with vinegar added some dish soap (dawn), red food colouring and red glitter to give it some fun. I printed and cut out the following volcano, and then covered it with mactac. I put the shot glass in the cone that I made and then I poured the vinegar solution into it.

- If you want the volcano to survive it's maiden voyage, you may want to mactac or laminate it.
- Wrap the cone around the shot glass. Cut the top of the volcano to accommodate the glass and be able to close.
- Tape the cone together.
