Oh, wow! You are not going to believe what we just made with our kid science lab kit! A tornado! Snow! A volcano! It was fantastic! And we made it all in our own home. We learned so much using the new Little Passports Weather Lab Science Kit. I am excited to show you what we made and how in this post.
Before we get into the nitty gritty of our super awesome hands-on kid Science lab kit, let me tell you about our lovely assistant, Toby. He is the sweetest-looking puppy dog and he is also a part of the Little Passports family. He is Max and Mia’s pet (Little Passports characters) and he goes with them on all their adventures.
When I gave this to my daughter, she was over the moon with him. He hasn’t left her side since! She carries him with her everywhere! And now, when we do our Little Passports packets every month when they conveniently come to us in the mail, she gets to do the activities with him. You can find more information on Toby here.
The Best Kid Science Lab Kit on Weather
Take a look at our Weather Lab Science Kit by Little Passports! This is seriously the most complete kid science lab kit about weather that I have ever seen. It comes in a convenient box, to keep it all organized and contained. I love the double-sided informational cards for all three activities.
You get celludough and paints to make a volcano. You get an awesome tornado display. And you get a packet to make your own artificial snow! All of the instructions were super easy to follow. I love that my 6-year old pretty much ran the show and I was there to take the pictures. 🙂

First, we made the volcano because it is a 3-step process. In case you were wondering, yes, the volcano activity comes with instructions on how to make it erupt! It was so much fun! Anyway, here are the steps:
- Make the volcano and let it dry for 12 hours.
- Once the volcano is completely dry, paint it to look real!
- Make it erupt!
We made ours one later afternoon (with the help of our lovely assistant, Toby) and it was dry by breakfast time the next morning. My children painted it after breakfast and by lunch time, it was dry. We made it erupt right after lunch. My children were so excited with it that we made it erupt a couple of times and the again when Daddy came home.
Watch this video about the very first eruption. I was holding both my phone to video this and my camera in the other, so it isn’t perfect. I just wanted to share my children’s reaction. Isn’t it fun?!
While our volcano was drying after they formed it, we decided to read up on tornadoes and even watch some youtube videos about tornadoes. My children were in awe of the devastation. I also showed them how the tornadoes’ high winds can even lift cows, tractors and even whole barns high up in the air.
With the tornado display that came in the Little Passports Weather Lab Science Kit, we can make tornadoes over and over. It was so fun reading the informational card. I knew about the categories, but not that there are different kinds of tornadoes (and I used to live in Oklahoma). We all learned a lot.
While our volcano was drying after they painted it, we made snow! This is artificial snow, but if you add really cold water to it, it actually does feel like real snow. We read about snow, we learned about snowflakes and we even played in the snow with our mini vehicle replicas (not included in the kit).
