For a few weeks, at least, I’m going to test your patience and blur blog boundaries and remind you of the fun things happening over on Bobbledy. A couple of weeks ago, we started hosting a theme of the week. Last week was beavers. This week is volcanoes. Every day but Sunday, we post ¬†interesting facts, figures, and photos (http://www NULL.bobbledybooks NULL.com/theme-of-the-week-volcanoes/) (at least we think so) on the theme. Saturday is facts and figures. Monday is a story by Matthew (http://www NULL.bobbledybooks NULL.com/writing-prompt-volanos/). Tuesday is a drawing by Robbi (http://www NULL.bobbledybooks NULL.com/draw-your-volcanoes/). And Wednesday is a quiz to test your knowledge of the topic.

Today, being Wednesday, I encourage you to head on over to Bobbledy and see if you really know volcanoes (http://www NULL.bobbledybooks NULL.com/kid-quiz-volcanos/). If you get all five questions right, pat yourselves on the back. I only got 2 right, and I had to guess on those. I am not ashamed to admit it.

Here is an actual volcano.

And here is a volcano by Robbi.

If you are so moved, you may head on over to Ebay (http://www NULL.ebay NULL.com/itm/Hot-Not-/121253910953), where this sucker can currently be had for only 2 pennies.

And, as a special bonus, if you are itching to make your very own volcano with stuff that you probably have lying around the house, check out this step-by-step tutorial (http://www NULL.bobbledybooks NULL.com/make-your-own-volcano/) by Robbi.

Within minutes your children (or cats, dogs, ferrets, elderly live-in parents) can be just as delighted as the children pictured below.

Can I have a shout out for volcanoes?
