Looking for a way to reuse your pumpkins now that Halloween has come and gone? A great project is to create a volcanic eruption inside of a pumpkin. Below are the steps and a few pictures from our experiment.

1. Cut a large hole in the top of the pumpkin

2. Scoop out the pulp and the seeds

3. Pour about a cup of baking soda into pumpkin

4. A few squirts of dish soap

5. About a cup of distilled vinegar

6. After pouring the vinegar into the pumpkin replace the lid back onto the pumpkin and watch the eruption occur!!!
