Magic School Bus Science EXPLOSION Game! Great for Family Game Night, Too!

EHSM Magic School Bus Science Explosion Game 2


This is a sponsored post. Educents has been one of my wonderful homeschool sponsors over the last several years. I love sharing about the delightfully engaging educational products that our family enjoys from Educents! Don’t forget to use special coupon code FHDeals10 to take 10% off your Educents orders. 

Magic School Bus Science Explosion!

Science Explosion is also unique in that it has a 2-sided game board. In the first, more simple game, players match scientific concepts (elements for example) with different topic cards (oxygen). If you match correctly, you move ahead.

In the second, more difficult game, players use memory skills and strategy to win.

While learning about many different fields of science, the goal is to be the first player to explode the volcano! We learned about the Human Body (as a former Nurse I love when my kids get to learn about Anatomy and Physiology), Solar System, Weather, Fungi, Famous Scientist, Insects, and much more – all before bedtime! We use this game as family game night fun. You can see in the pictures that my 5 year old, 7 year old, and 9 year old, could all play this game and enjoy learning fun together.

My kids loved how they could get put in a little spoonful of baking soda into their little science measuring cup. This game has so many fun hands-on elements! They ask to play it everyday now. 🙂 A quick note, I would suggest adding in a little red food coloring to the vinegar to make a “red explosion.” Also, we only had apple cider vinegar on hand. I would suggest using White Vinegar. I wanted to go ahead and enjoy the game though, regardless. The kids had so much fun!

Included in Science Explosion:

→ 2-sided game board – a more simple and more difficult version

→ A Volcano for the explosions, and a tray to catch the “lava”

→ Measuring cups to use as game pieces

→ 16 science master cards and 80 science topic cards

This set of Magic School Bus Games can only be purchased from Educents in this 2-game bundle!  When purchased, you’ll receive Science Explosion AND Math Explosion!
