    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

       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

       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

    Where were chemistry kits like this when I was a kid? It has some excellent experiments, a manual that plainly explains chemistry concepts, and it comes with a chemistry station to put together! Some of the awesome experiments include making a fire extinguisher on a small scale, making color-changing slime, growing salt crystals, making “invisible” ink, and creating an underwater volcano. Some experiments are more basic and recognizable, such as a self-inflating balloon. Even the less “fun” experiments, however, are quite cool because the manual explains why the substances involved work the way they do, and later experiments may use a concept learned in previous ones. Rather than the “throw away” kits that just contain some experiments, but not a lot of useful information, I feel kids can come out with a lot of foundational chemistry knowledge after going through this one! For instance, in the classic “oil and water” experiment, the manual explains that the reason water does not mix with oil is due to water molecules being polar and oil molecules being nonpolar, which is due to the sizes of the atoms that make up the molecules. It then explains that they can be mixed if an emulsifier (dish detergent) is added. This knowledge is then applied to a later experiment with moving colors, which travel because of an emulsifier and the attractions caused by it. As the manual clearly explains the concepts that go along with the experiments, children are able to learn and apply chemistry concepts at the same time. The 20 included experiments can all be done with the enclosed materials and common household items. - Janine
