Storylines Festival

I had a fabulous time at the Storylines Family Day in Auckland on Sunday (27th August).  We set up four volcanoes in a row.  I poured in vinegar and baking soda into two of them to give frothy demonstrations of volcanic eruptions.  Quite a few kids were going to go home and try it (good luck, parents!). My hands were covered in red dye by the time I went home.

After the demonstrations, I encouraged children to make paper volcanoes with me. If you want to make one, go to the Eruption! book site on my website and you can download a Rangitoto activity.  Colour it in, cut it out then glue the tabs together. You will then have your genuine own Rangitoto volcano.


  1. Thanks for your article. My partner and i have continually seen that the majority of people are needing to lose weight because they wish to appear slim plus attractive. Having said that, they do not continually realize that there are other benefits just for losing weight in addition. Doctors say that obese people come across a variety of disorders that can be instantly attributed to their particular excess weight. Thankfully that people that are overweight plus suffering from diverse diseases are able to reduce the severity of their particular illnesses by losing weight. It is possible to see a progressive but noticeable improvement in health whenever even a bit of a amount of fat reduction is achieved.

  2. Thanks for your posting. I have often noticed that the majority of people are needing to lose weight when they wish to appear slim and attractive. Even so, they do not often realize that there are many benefits to losing weight as well. Doctors claim that overweight people have problems with a variety of disorders that can be perfectely attributed to their excess weight. The great news is that people who're overweight along with suffering from different diseases are able to reduce the severity of their illnesses by way of losing weight. You'll be able to see a slow but marked improvement with health whenever even a moderate amount of fat loss is obtained.
