Coping Skill: Homemade lava lamp
A lava lamp can be mesmerizing to watch. When you watch something like that, it can help you relax and slow yourself down. It could be a great thing to do when you are about to study for a long time, sit and do homework or about to do some reading.
You could buy a lava lamp, or you could actually make your own. What you need:
- a plastic bottle
- food coloring
Combine the water and food coloring to make a color for your lava lamp. Then fill the bottle ⅔ of the way with oil. Then pour the colored water on top, leaving an inch of space at the top. Break the alka-seltzer up into small parts and drop one piece in at a time. Watch the lava lamp come to life!!
