SPECIAL TIPS:
Some tips for casting a successful volcano: the Ultimate Volcano directions call for one cup of water to be added to the plaster, and this amount works for most customers. However, if you have added a full cup and the mix still seems too thick to pour into the mold, stir in a little extra water, adding a bit at a time (up to 1/4 cup). The ideal consistency should be thick, but pourable. We also recommend working quickly and using cold water throughout, since warm or hot water can make the plaster harden more quickly.

I was excited to get to try The Ultimate Volcano Kit Discover with Dr Cool.

Our girls are starting to get to the age where they are very interested in volcanoes and dinosaurs. So we were all very excited to get to build our own volcano.  Making the volcano was fun and easy with the step by step directions. We decided to measure our plaster at 2 cups to 1 cup of ice water.  I suggest you follow the directions in the kit.  We used the extra plaster to make a lava rock.  After about 45 minutes we removed the volcano from the mold and chipped away the excess plaster that leaked from the sides of the mold and smoothed the seams. I baked the volcano on a cookie sheet at 200 degrees for 2 hours, let it cool and then we all took part and painted the volcano.  We were feeling creative so we decided to pain the cardboard underneath the volcano and make a bigger backdrop scene.  The girls added the dinosaurs, plants, shells and the loofah, arrow head and the geode to the scene. I a tsp of each of the eruption powders and added water. The volcano erupted and there were cheers from all. This was a fun project and the little girls loved it. We are going to use the other forms of eruption recipes next time. The plaster mixing is the trickiest part, make sure you use cold water and mix quickly. I recommend it!

  1. very disappointed. The instructions don't say anything about using more water if necessary. It was way too thick with 1 cup of water and while I kept re-reading the instructions, the plaster hardened too much. I now have a 7 year old sad boy who was sooooo excited to make a volcano and it's ruined because of the poor instructions. Would have been helpful to put tips on the instructions!!!!! Or tell people to go on line and read about it first. Shouldn't have to but apparently have to. Would NOT recommend it!!!

  2. I agree. I bought this kit and it was a tremendous disappointment. The directions are horrible and the only thing it produced was disappointment. Seems like the only positive reviews are the compensated ones. Save your money
