I didn't think the plastic volcano form was cheap. I mean it IS plastic, but for $13.99, I didn't expect any more. In fact, I thought it was well thought out to make it easily and effectively painted by kids. The directions include painting tips, like using the included sponge to create the look of trees blending with barren areas. There are ridges and crevices in the right places to make it realistic. We thought it was hugely fun to paint and the end result was photoworthy.
Finally, it was time for the eruptions. We did take the advice given in the instructions and super-glued the legs on. Otherwise, they would have never stayed. But the eruptions themselves were pretty much DUDS! The kit says you can expect them to be anywhere from one to six feet high, but ours were nothing like that. Maybe ten inches for a few seconds, then just a constant ooze. I guess that was okay for our first volcanic eruption - Mauna Loa, but not Mt. St. Helens!
We tried some different formulations (more vinegar, adding corn syrup), but it really didn't make much difference. Too bad, because up till then it was a lot of fun.
