Why Our Experts Love It

Look, anyone can make a little fizzy lava...but this kit goes way beyond.

Great instructions from the pros at the Smithsonian. You actually mold the compound on top of the sub-structure. Beyond the cool volcano, this is great for any school project or a rainy day or a great birthday present.

And the kit includes the safety goggles...which we LOVE!
