Is it Dobby? Grogu from the Mandalorian? Gollum from the hobbit? Aslan from Narnia? Captain Hook or Peter Pan? Trolls? Maleficent? The BFG? Stitch? The list is as endless as your imagination!

Create a lava special lighting effect for a fantastic creature

Equipment – A clean plastic bottle, try to use one with smooth sides

Water; or a tall glass or jam jar; Vegetable Oil (or you could use Mineral or Baby Oil instead);Fizzing tablets (such as Alka Seltzer, vitamin C fizzy tablets or bath bombs ); Food Colouring

Fill the bottle up about 1/4th (1 quarter) with water.

Pour the vegetable oil in the bottle until is almost full. You may want to use a measuring cup with a spout or a funnel. You may have to wait a couple of minutes for the oil and water to separate.

Add a few drops of your favourite food colouring. Watch as the colour sinks through the oil. Did your drops of colour mix with the water immediately or float in between for a few minutes?

Break your fizzy tablet in half and drop part of it into the bottle. Get ready … here come the bubbly blobs!

You can even get a flashlight, turn off the lights and drop in another half tablet. This time shine the flashlight through the lava lamp while the blobs are bubbling!
