It sure has been wet so far this year, and this is a good thing.

O.K. Summer is right around the corner. The kids will be out of school, and it'll be up to you to find some type of entertainment for them.

We all know that there are only so many times you can get them to mow the lawn. Plus, let's be honest - mowing the lawn is not fun. You might want to come up with some "projects" for them this summer.

Now, because it's so wet out, you can get away with some questionable experiments. I found one from Germany. It's an attempt to make a volcano out of 72,000 matches. Yea. Fun right? Hell yea, spanky.

You just need a glue gun, a drill, and 72,000 matches. This is 'Merica. We got that. Plus, you don't need to buy any explosives for it, so it's legal as long as you don't start a brush fire. That's why it's good that it's so wet out.

Build up the volcano with the glue gun, fill up the middle of the volcano with match heads. Now the video failed on the entrance. He didn't fill up the tunnel with match heads so it just died at the door. You can fix that.

Be sure to film it, but learn from the video's mistake, and keep the camera more than 2 feet away.

You're going to be the cool parent after this. It'll be like buying the kids booze, except this won't get you tossed in jail. Bonus!
