Volcano Making Kits

Here is a selection of Volcano Making kits. If you have come to this web page directly from a search engine this is part of my series of tutorials on how to make a volcano. In these tutorials I show you all kinds of ways to make a volcano from the easy posterboard volcano that you can do in less than an hour to the crazy mentos and diet coke volcano that takes longer but is spectacular! You can check out all those various tutorials below. They all come with a video tutorial that shows you exactly how to make them. All of these volcanoes work!


  • Make the easy posterboard volcano - This one is fast and easy, and it comes with a volcano fact sheet if you are doing this for a school project. Great way to learn how a volcano works.
  • Make the Spectacular volcano - This one takes a bit more work but it uses 2 liters of soda and mentos for a stream that goes a couple of feet into the air!
  • Make the volcano diorama - This one uses paper mache or plaster to make a middle of the road but more realistic looking diorama style volcano. it uses baking soda and vinegar. You use a cardboard box for this and it also works well to contain the lava flow.


Here are the Volcano Making Kits

Books on Volcanoes


National Geographic Volcanoes book

Volcanoes! (National Geographic Readers)

The cool story of volcanoes will intrigue kids and adults alike. Hot melted rock from the middle of our planet forces its way up through cracks in the Earth's crusts, exploding violently and sometimes unexpectedly in volcanic fury that can terrorize populations for months, even years. Anne Schreiber's narrative gives readers a little of the science, a little of the history, and a lot of the action. National Geographic photography fires the imagination on dramatic spreads alive with vivid images of lava, ash, molten rock, weird rocks, and steaming seawater.

Killer Volcano! (DVD) NOVA - In the Path of a Killer Volcano The Philippines' Mount Pinatubo is about to blow big. Is there enough time to evacuate the hundreds of thousands in its raging path? Stay with the scientists who remain behind- and see some astonishing footage of the world's largest volcanic eruption in 80 years. Local tribespeople were the first to see the signs. "There was a flash of light from the sky," said one. "I thought it was my time to die." The Philippines' Mount Pinatubo was acting restless- and the volcanologists at Clark Air Force Base were starting to sweat. An angry mountain is highly unpredictable. If they misread its fits and starts, a violent explosion could send pyroclastic flow- hot, dense avalanches- roaring down its sides at 100 miles per hour, burning everyone and everything in its path. But if they ordered an evacuation and nothing happened, these experts could lose their credibility for good. With a typhoon headed in their direction, the stakes are even higher. Torrential rains turn ash and rock into hot mud flows that can bury a town in minutes. Is it time to issue a Level 4 alert- ordering hundreds of thousands to flee their homes? Stay with the courageous scientists who remain behind- and see some astonishing footage as the world's biggest eruption in 80 years really starts to blow.
