Do you have little ones that love to participate in the science experiments that you do with your older children?

My little ones always love to participate in the fun, messy, hands-on science experiments that we did with my older children. My older children even love to “help” and play with the little ones when we do sensory play with them. We have always loved volcanoe science experiments! There is just something about that fun, fizzy, explosion that kids love and remember.

I thought it would be fun to put together a round up of some fun, sensory science experiments that are for erupting volcanoes. I love all the different vessel ideas!

Dinosaur Volcano Sensory Play from Little Bins for Little Hands – this looks like a lot of fun. Your kids can create their own little dinosaur world with an erupting volcano!

Glittery Volcanoe from Kiwi Crate – love this fun volcanoe that uses glitter and play “snow”.

Fizzy Volcano with Playdough from In the Playroom – I love how this volcanoe uses playdough as the base!

Lemon Volcanoe from Babble Dabble Do – using a lemon as the base of this volcano makes for an extra special sensory experience with the sense of smell included!
Try this easy science activity for kids: make lemon volcanoes and watch the chemical reaction of citric acid and baking soda.

Rainbow Volcano from Preschool Powol Packets – this volcano uses fun rainbow colored cloud dough! 

Lego Volcano Science Experiment from Little Bins for Little Hands – this is a lot of fun for lego lovers! You use legos to build your volcano before you add your ingredients.

Confetti Science Eruptions from Little Bins for Little Hands – this would be great to do at a birthday party too!

Sand Volcano Fun from Growing A Jeweled Rose – you can do this in a sand box, or at a beach! How fun would that be?
Making a sand volcano is tons of fun for kids!  You can easily set this activity up at the beach or right in your sand box.

Mini Pumpkin Volcanoes from Freebie Finding Mom – these volcanoes are made with cute mini pumpkins!
Want a fun and educational fall inspired project to do with the kids? These mini pumpkin volcanoes are guaranteed to impress. If your kids are older, they will understand the chemical reaction taking place in this fall science experiment, but this could also be a great fall preschool project as well. What kid wouldn’t love to see mini pumpkins erupt?

Watermelon Volcano Small World from Two Daloo – this looks like a fun summer activity!
