Make your own lava lamp at home activity instructions
!—Lead forensics script -->
There’s something truly mesmerising about that old 1970s classic: the lava lamp. In this Christmas STEM activity, we’re going to show you how to make your own lava lamp with food colourings, at home with your children.
Start off by watching our fantastic three-minute ‘Science with Bexy’ video, to see what’s involved in this fun activity and learn about the science behind what’s happening.
Download our make your own lava lamp instructions and then it’s time to get creative with your kids! And when all the hard work’s done, sit back, relax and unwind as you observe the fizz! If you’re up for an extra activity, try our word fun challenge.
And please do share your learning highlights and final creations with us on social media @IETeducation #SantaLovesSTEM or send them via email to IETEducation@theiet.org to be featured in our online gallery.
