Truthfully I don't remember what sparked this experiment. One day we decided to make crystals.
The kids made some shapes out of pipe cleaners while...
I gathered an array of crystal forming ingredients.
Oh my goodness! The excitement for this experiment is overwhelming. Memories in the making.
So 22 days later I get around to documenting the results. Sydney's hypothesis was correct. If you want to make crystals, use borax. Do not use sugar. Salt was ok but took more than 2 weeks for the water to evaporate.
