Lava Lamp

Garden Bin Preschool Craft

Do a fun experiment with water because Jesus WALKED on water!


Clear container or jar
Baby oil
Food coloring
Alka Seltzer® tablet


  1. Fill your container 2/3 full of oil.
  2. Add water, leaving a little room at the top to prevent overflow.
  3. Once oil and water have separated, add a few drops of food coloring.
  4. Add an Alka Seltzer tablet and watch the lava lamp effect that occurs!
  5. Wow! This water is really cool! But, it’s not as cool as when Jesus walked on water. Talk about that story and how Jesus can do amazing things.
