Many of you know that lemons are one of my favorite fruits, we use them every day! Lemons are incredibly versatile and are great in recipes, cleaning products and DIY projects!

These Colorful Lemon Volcanoes are a great way to use up lemons that are about to go bad. The kids can pick out the different colors and be amazed when they erupt! Use your craft sticks to stir more baking soda into the lemons for the fun to continue!
