Holiday Gift Guide | The Magic School Bus Blasting Off with Erupting Volcanoes Review & Giveaway (US)

Are you searching for the perfect holiday gift idea for young scientists? The Magic School Bus-Blasting Off with Erupting Volcanoes is an award winning educational toy kit that is sure to be a “blast” with children, ages five and up.

The Young Scientists Club™ is proud to offer a new science kit that gives children the opportunity to learn hands-on about volcanoes and the layers of the earth by creating a “lava” mixture which will explode from their painted volcano. My three children are huge fans of The Magic School Bus and my six year old loves geology so they were all very excited to make their own volcano in the kit, Blasting Off with Erupting Volcanoes.

This winner of a Creative Child Toy of the Year Award, Blasting Off with Erupting Volcanoes is exciting, fun and educational. Children will have the opportunity to learn more the layers of the earth, observe real pumice, paint their own volcano, explore different volcanic eruptions, create the ultimate “lava” mixture, label parts of a volcano, study tectonic plate movement and explode their volcano.

My three of my children were intrigued by this science kit and devoured all of the included information about geology and volcanoes. With a bit of my oversight and supervision, my children had no problem doing the experiments and they LOVED it! Their eyes were widened in awe and they shouted with excitement when their volcano “exploded.” As a home educator, I find this kit by The Young Scientists Club™ to be a wonderful resource to spark their interest in science and the world around them.

The Magic School Bus™ recently celebrated its 25th anniversary and Blasting Off with Erupting Volcanoes is one of several science kits offered by The Young Scientists Club™ including Jumping into Electricity. You can purchase these kits online or at retailers nationwide including Toys R Us.
