Lava lamps are very fascinating, the colourful blobs moving up and down in a never-ending dance make it appear almost magical.

Our Lava Lamp science experiment supported the children to continue their understanding of science as we spoke about the properties of oil and water mixing and how water is denser than oil and how they react together to create the magic of our lava lamps.

The children and educators used mathematical learning as they carefully measured the amount of water and oil that they needed for each lava lamp.

The children loved this experiment and proudly showed their lava lamps to all educators and their families.
