1.7.11: Making a volcano

1.7.11: We made a volcano using the mold from a volcano making kit lent to us by Shannon.
We used some rubberbands to secure the mold
We used clay as we didn't have plaster of Paris. It did the job perfectly. 
E loves working with clay, whereas S didn't like to get his hands dirty. 
We used an empty film cannister as a container to fit in the middle of the volcano.  After that, we left it to dry for several days.
6.7.11: The boys painted their volcano with light and dark brown poster colours.
