volcano



i really wish i could get
one of those kids' science books,
that has descriptions of all the things
i don't understand myself
with accompanying experiments
and diagrams and all that.
but in its absence, i'm left on my own,
sifting back through my memory
to the things we did in elementary school
about 30 times,
like this volcano.
it was a big hit.
we made the volcano out of modeling clay
and added a little "special water"
and "special flour"
and the excitement on the floor
just boiled over.

What a cute idea!

I've been thinking about doing the same thing with that "special water" and "special flour" except in the toilet. Makes scrubbing the toilet VERY exciting. :)

What about putting a white carnation in colored water and watching it change color. that was always a fun one.
