Rachael Bursts Into Song When Model Tosses Antacid Into Vegetable Oil For A DIY Lava Lamp

I’m always looking for fun activities I can do with my nephew that don’t involve staring at a screen and listening to “Wheels on the Bus” for the fiftieth time in a row. So, you can imagine how excited I was when I stumbled upon this amazing DIY lava lamp project!

It’s such a fun project, as you can see by Rachael Ray’s hilarious reaction when model Camila Alves (a.k.a. Mrs. Matthew McConaughey) shares the steps for creating this at home, while visiting her show.

It couldn’t be any easier — and chances are you have all of the necessary ingredients already sitting in your cabinets.

All you need is a water bottle, water, vegetable oil, food coloring, and antacid tablets. Even though it doesn’t glow quite as bright as the electronic lava lamps I remember having back in the day, you have to admit the effect is still pretty darn cool!

I can already see the look on my nephew’s face when we whip up our own DIY lava lamp. It’s just so much nicer to know you made something together with your own hands instead of relying on toys and gadgets bought at the store.

Even when little ones grow up and lose interest in those silly games and things from their youth, they definitely won’t forget how much they loved getting to spend time with their family.

Have you ever made a DIY lava lamp like this with your kids or grandkids?
