Home-made Lava Lamp

So my daughter was at a friends house last weekend. When she come home she was telling me how she wanted to go buy a lava lamp, because her friend had one!
I thought to myself, "We can make one of those, I know it!"

So I got online and found a website that had a lava lamp recipe. My daughter was really into the idea of making this.

So pretty much what we did was mixed some water and baby oil with a few drops of food coloring in a plastic bottle for some lava lamp action.

Here are the directions for anyone interested in making one too :)


1. Fill the bottle three fourths (3/4) of the way with vegetable oil.
2. Fill the rest of the bottle with colored water.
3. Close the lid tightly.
4. Turn the bottle on its side – watch as the color moves through the oil in funny shapes and blobs.
The water and the oil do not mix because the water has more density than the oil.
