Bonjour à tous,

Les volcans sont très populaires chez les jeunes enfants et ils peuvent être très excitant à faire soit même. Tout ce dont vous avez besoin est un peu de temps et les matériaux suivant:

– une boite en carton si vous souhaitez que votre volcan soit en éruption ou sinon, un morceau de carton plat

– une petite bouteille en plastique

– un sac en plastique

– des ciseaux ou un couteau

– des journaux et/ou des magazines

– du scotch

– un bol et un fouet

– de la farine et de l’eau (pour faire votre colle)

– de la peinture

Afin de faire votre colle, versez un verre de farine dans un bol et ajouter l’eau lentement jusqu’à ce que vous obteniez la consistance d’une pâte à crêpes plutôt épaisse. Utilisez le fouet pour enlever les grumeaux de colle et vous êtes prêt à commencer. Trempez une bande de papier dans la colle et enlever le surplus avec vos doigts, puis couvrez votre volcan.

Bonne journée et n’oubliez pas, Just Speak!

Hello Everyone,

Volcanos are very popular among young children and they can be just as exciting to make as they are to learn about. All you need is a bit of time and the following materials :

– an empty box if you’d like your volcano to erupt or a flat piece of cardboard otherwise

– a small plastic bottle

– a plastic bag

– scissors or knife

– newspapers, catalogues and/or magazines

– tape

– a bowl and a whisk

– flour and water (to make your glue)

– paint

In order to make your “glue”, pour about a cup of flour into a bowl and slowly add water until you get the consistency of pancake batter.  Next, use the whisk to take the lumps out of your glue and then you are ready to begin. For the last part, simply dip a strip of paper into the glue and take off the excess with your fingers, then start covering your volcano.

Have a great day and remember, Just Speak!

Danielle
