$12.99 You add water to a prepackaged sand mix and pat the resulting compound onto a plastic volcano mold. The volcanic substructure dries in 20 minutes and can then--with or without a paint job--be called into service as an eruption center. To create an eruption, put a tablespoon of baking soda (sample enclosed) in the crater, then squirt a mixture of vinegar, liquid soap, and food coloring from a squeeze bottle into a tube that runs under the volcano and terminates at the crater (bottle and tube enclosed). Voila! An eruption. A pair of child-sized safety goggles is included, as are three genuine volcanic rocks. The manual is packed with 22 pages of fascinating information about volcanoes.
