Homemade Lava Lamps

With the new baby at home we have been looking for fun ideas of things to do while I feed the baby.  Today I set up a lava lamp station

Items used: Tube Rack, Oil, Water, food coloring, alka seltzer.
First E filled the tubes 3/4 of the way with oil, then he filled the remaining 1/3 of the tube with water.  Then in each tube E added food coloring (the more the better)  In a petri dish I had broken each alka seltzer into 4 pieces.  He added one piece at a time and watched his "lava lamp" until each piece was dissolved.

Yellow, Red, Blue and Green Lava Lamps!

This kept him busy long enough to feed the baby, and what fun!
