Do lava lamps ever really go out of style? I remember being fascinated with them as a child, so much so that I begged my parents to get me one. If you are intrigued but don't really want a long-term relationship with the 60s, you'll be happy to learn you can make your very own temporary lamp, all with simple household ingredients. This project works not only as a fun DIY you can do with your kids, but a science experiment to boot. Inhabitots posted this clever how-to that uses common household items like vegetable oil and a recycled jar. The only "exotic" ingredient you'll need is Alka Selzer, and we're fairly sure that's commonly available. With the step by step tutorial, you'll have a bubbling lamp in no time.
