For Eli's birthday party we thought it would be fun to make an erupting volcano (since it was a dinosaur party). We started out trying to make a large volcano out of salt dough and it was a giant, sticky glob of a mess and no matter how hard we tried we couldn't get it to stay in any sort of volcano form. I was seriously doubting my ability to shape something into a volcano when we decided to give it one more try with modeling clay. Success!! We made one large one and one small one. After all that work though we never ended up erupting them at his birthday party- there was just too much going on and the kids were just having so much fun with everything else that we decided to skip it.
So a day or two after his party we had our own little volcano erupting celebration and the kids loved it!
