We conclude this week of #science and #material experiments with another fun thing to do with #kids while #stayingathome: 
The Lava Lamp

Materials
- A clean 1 liter clear soda bottle
- 3/4 cup of water
- Vegetable Oil
- Fizzing tablets (such as Alka Seltzer)
- Food coloring

Steps
1. Pour the water into the bottle.
2. Use a measuring cup to slowly pour the vegetable oil into the bottle until it’s almost full. You may have to wait a few minutes for the oil and water to separate.
3. Add 10 drops of food coloring to the bottle. The drops will pass through the oil and then mix with the water below.
4. Break a seltzer tablet in half and drop the half tablet into the bottle. Watch it sink to the bottom and watch the magic happen. 

STAY SAFE, STAY HEALTHY
and hopefully we can all soon go out again and do some stuff in the wild.

This is #Elephant #Toothpaste!!!

Materials
- Empty 20-ounce plastic bottle (or other container)
- 3% hydrogen peroxide solution 
- Packet of active yeast 
- Liquid dishwashing detergent 
- Warm water
- Food coloring (optional, but it looks nice)

Steps
1. Pour 1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide solution, 1/4 cup dishwashing soap, and a few drops of food coloring into the bottle. Swish the bottle around to mix the ingredients. Set the bottle in a sink or some other place where you wont mind getting wet foam everywhere.
2. In a separate container, mix a packet of active yeast with a little warm water. Give the yeast about five minutes to activate before proceeding to the next step.
3. Pour the yeast mixture into the bottle. The reaction occurs immediately upon the addition of the yeast.

Ever heard of the Black Snake aka Carbon Sugar Snake? Here's how to make your own:

1. In a bowl, combine 4 tsp of powdered sugar with 1 tsp of baking soda
2. Fill an old plate or pie tin with sand and create a small mound in the middle. Make a small indent into its center.
3. Pour lighter fluid on the mound and in the indentation. Make sure that the sand is well soaked.
4. Spoon your sugar and baking soda mix into the center of the mound.
5. Carefully light the sand near the sugar mixture.

The sugar and baking soda mix will begin to bubble and turn black. As this mixture burns, watch as your snake begins to grow and take shape.

Yet another #fun #science #experiment to try while staying at home: 
The Naked Egg

1. Place the egg in a tall glass or jar and cover the egg with vinegar.
2. Leave the egg in the vinegar for a full 24 hours.
3. Change the vinegar on the second day. Place the glass with the vinegar and egg in a safe place for a few more days. 
4. After around 7 days pour off the vinegar and carefully rinse the egg with water. The egg looks translucent because the shell is gone! The only thing that remains is a delicate membrane of the egg surrounding the white and the yolk.

Are you getting #bored of staying at home all day? Why dont you try one of our recipes on #DIY material making, like for example creating your own #organic soap. ⠀
So if youre out of toilet paper, at least you can still wash yourself ;)⠀
