How to make

Step 1 

Cut out your template and draw around it onto your cardboard.

Step 2 

Paint your volcano brown all over. Don’t worry if you go over the edges, as you will be cutting it out.

Step 3 

Once it’s dry, cut the volcano out. Paste glue onto the tab at the edge and stick the ends together so it forms a sort of cone. Dab glue around the bottom of your volcano and stick it onto your paper plate. Hold it in place for a few minutes to help it stick.

Step 4 

Tear up strips of tissue paper and stuff them into the top of your volcano so it looks like it is erupting! Add scrunched up tissue around the base of your volcano to make lava.

Step 5 

And you’re done!
