What You Need

6 Steps to Make a Lava Lamp

  1. Fill the bottle till the three quarters mark with oil.
  2. Pour water in the remaining part, but make sure to leave about an inch of space.
  3. Put about 10 drops of food coloring.
  4. What’s happening? Does the food coloring change when it moves through the oil or when it hits the water?
  5. Break an Alka-seltzer tablet in four. Drop one piece at a time, and see the effect!
  6. You can use different food colours each time for a new funky shade and pattern.
