       Build your own volcano with this easy to assemble kit. Three pieces make up the volcano. Paint the outside of the pieces, let them dry and easily assemble. After your volcano has dried, insert an empty plastic water or soda bottle inside for your eruption. The kit includes the three foam volcano parts, 4 small pots of paint, 1 bottle of black paint, and 2 paint brushes. You will need to supply vinegar, baking soda, red food coloring, dish soap, empty bottle, measuring cup, measuring spoon, small funnel (optional), and a large tray or pan on which to place your volcano. Instructions are found on the side of the box for assembly and eruptions, and Smoothfoam is easy to paint and assemble for some quick volcano fun! ~ Donna

    This might just be the most awesome volcano kit we carry! This kit includes a volcano mold, plaster, eruption powder, paint, paintbrush, booklets, and real specimens (geode, obsidian and pumice). Be creative and paint your volcano to make it personally yours, then make it erupt over and over with the erupting powder. The geode, obsidian and pumice are included so you can see and feel the different types of igneous rocks. You even get the bonus activity of breaking the geode to see what types of crystals are inside the rock. The Activity booklet includes ten fun puzzles - word search, dot-to-dot, word jumble, crossword, a very challenging volcano maze, and five more types of puzzles. The Adventure Guide includes information about volcanoes, structure of the earth, plate tectonics, etc. accompanied by colored photographs.

    This Discover with Dr. Cool Kit is just that – COOL! Great fun to paint, erupt, and learn about volcanoes and rocks. ~ Donna

       Let’s blow this thing! Probably not the words you want to hear from your children, unless they are talking about this cool science kit. Setting this apart from other kits is the ability to be reused with some easy to find items. The kit itself includes a plastic volcano form, adhesive strips, plaster wrap, acrylic paints, paintbrush, squeeze bottle, funnel and tube, cotton ball, baking soda, red food coloring, foam lava rocks, 2 plastic dinosaurs (for prehistoric authenticity) and illustrated instructions. You will need to provide 2-3 hours and vinegar.

      The step by step, illustrated directions are straightforward and easy to follow. Simply assemble your volcano form and apply the plaster wrap which is like an elastic wrap bandage (yay! less mess). Dry approximately 1 hour. Paint the volcano. Dry. This step may take 2-3 hours depending on how thick the paint was applied. Add ingredients to simulate a true volcanic eruption and squeeze! Lava rocks and food coloring add a bit of authenticity to the experience! Completed volcano measures approximately 10” in height. Personally, I would use an old cookie sheet to place the volcano on to help control the mess or use it outside. The beautiful thing about this kit is that once the volcano has erupted, it can be cleaned up and air dried for repeated use. Encourage children to make changes to the amount of vinegar and baking soda. Keep record(s) of changes and their results, analyze the data, and you have discovered the heart of the scientific method! ~ Deanne

    This kit includes everything students need to build and erupt a volcano. The plastic volcano base measures 7" in diameter and 5" tall. A pound of modeling mix is included so students can mold easy-to-use plaster around the base to create a volcano that looks and feels like rock. Acrylic paints and a paintbrush are included to add color (red, orange, yellow, and brown). Once students have made their realistic-looking mini volcano, the fun can really start. The kit contains 1oz. of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda). Pour 1 teaspoon of the baking soda into the crater of the model and then add a teaspoon of vinegar and watch the volcano bubble and erupt. Add food coloring to the baking soda to make the eruptions more colorful. (Vinegar and food coloring are NOT included.) As long as you have all the ingredients, you can make countless eruptions with this fun model. A booklet is included which gives illustrated directions for construction and eruption as well as a bit of general information about volcanoes. Great for getting students interested in geology or just for fun. ~ Rachel

    Falling in love with science doesn't just happen. Rather, it is an overflow of a curious nature, and there is no better way to stir curiosity in our children than allowing them to get their hands dirty, so to speak.

    This interactive kit contains everything necessary to complete several activities that introduce children to the properties of chemistry. Step-by-step instructions, follow up questions and the underlying scientific principles are provided, making this easy and educational for your little chemist. Here is a sampling of the activities your child will participate in: Clash of the Powders (baking soda and citric acid), Fizzy Volcanoes, Soapy Bubbles, Yeasty Beasties and many others. Younger children will be enthralled as they become real scientists - measuring and mixing compounds, analyzing results and looking at what happens when slight changes are made to the original experiment. Supply a few common household items along with adult supervision and watch your children fall in love with science! ~Deanne

    Have you ever come up with a great idea, like building a volcano with the kids, only to find yourself asking just how you are going to pull that off? Are you a model train enthusiast looking to create your own scenery? How about art projects or holiday décor (I'm thinking of a snowy background for those little houses) taken to the next level of awesome! This papery powder mixes with water – 2 parts compound to 1 part water – and sets up plaster-hard in 30 minutes, but takes several days to cure. Once thoroughly mixed, apply it to a form or armature with your hands or tools, it will stick to wet or dry surfaces, including glass. Sculpt whatever you little heart desires! This non-toxic, cellulose-based material can be made smooth or textured. When dry, it may be sanded, sawed, carved or nailed. It is similar to papier-mâché without the shrinking. Add more to your U Build the Mountain Deluxe Kit (#055821.) Your finished product will be light weight and durable and can be clear-coated. 3lb bag ~ Sara
