When I was a kid, Christmas indoor fireworks used to include something like this.

Now, health and safety + the `I will sue you` brigade have made sure that nothing like this will be enjoyed by kids any more.

Tabletop volcanoes and thermal decomposition
The volcano demonstration involves igniting a pile of the salt, which initiates the following exothermic conversion:[7]
(NH4)2Cr2O7 (s) → Cr2O3 (s) + N2 (g) + 4 H2O (g) (ΔH=−429.1 ± 3 kcal/mol)
