Make Your Own Lava Lamp

Difficulty level: Beginner
What you’ll need: plastic water bottle, vegetable oil, funnel, water, food coloring, masking tape or glue

1. Peel of the label and wash your bottle. Fill 3/4 of the bottle with oil.
2. Fill a measuring cup with an equal amount of water and add a couple of drops of food coloring.
3. Pour colored water into bottle of oil. Secure cap with glue or masking tape, and have a great time.
Bonus tip: Make sure your kids appreciate the oil-doesn’t-mix-with-water analogy before splurging on that real lava lamp.
