This was probably one of the most fun things I have had a chance to review. The Ultimate Volcano Kit is great. I loved everything about this, probably as much if not more than my kids did. Not only do I love Science, but this told me everything I needed to know about Volcanoes and how they worked as well as the different aspects of Volcanic substances.
Now, My kids all loved painting and decorating the volcano. That was the part I let them have free reign on and Alek is quiet the artist, so he did most of the minute details on the Volcano structure and is actually re-doing it as we speak because after so any eruptions from the Volcano itself, it is a little worse for the wear and he wants to keep this, so he is making it look amazing again. He is adding all the little details he left off at first because he wanted the younger kids to be a part of things also and let them help decorate it the first time. I can't wait to add new pictures once he has it finished as well.
This was so much fun!
Once we flowed directions and ad our Volcano ready to go, we were able to make it erupt 4 times. I think if we had more of the powder that makes it erupt, we could keep doing it because this thing is heavy duty. I remember in school we made the paper mache ones and they usually only got one good sue out of them, but this one rocks it ! It really erupts quiet beautifully and the kids were amazed.
First you'll use the plaster and mold included to make your volcano chamber. Then you'll use the brush and paints included in the kit to decorate it.
Next you'll make the volcano erupt over and over again with the eruption powder (included). Plus you'll get to examine 3 genuine volcanic specimens including: a real geode, an obsidian arrowhead, and a floating piece of volcanic rock called pumice.
The information guide will teach you all about your specimens as well as how volcanoes form and why they erupt. Also included is an activity booklet with 10 fun games, puzzles, and challenges to complete.
Now, because everything is included in the kit, you won't need to run to the store for additional supplies. If you're doing this project for the science fair, you'll love how nice this volcano looks---it's way better then those paper mache volcanoes. This is the perfect science kit for anyone interested in geology, earth science, or volcanoes.
This would make a great fun Summer project for rainy days with the kids, I hope to find a few more experiments from discoverwithdrcool to do this Summer as well. This Volcano kit so super affordable for any budget and we plan to pick up a couple more of these for gifts also.
