Before the kids got out for spring break Macie brought home an extra credit assignment. Make a volcano. It didn't have to erupt and the only thing that was required was a hollow inside so they could make it erupt in school. This assignment was optional but Macie was beyond excited to participate.
A trip to Michaels and we were ready to get started. I love Michaels 40% off coupons. Life savers for craft projects. This volcano took an entire 5 pound bucket of clay. The lava was painted entirely by Macie on her own. She mixed the colors and everything.
We had so much fun making this and Macie was beaming with pride when we walked into the school Monday morning.
She REALLY wants to be a scientist and this just made her even more sure.
