How to Grow a Crystal

May 11, 2021 06:21 AM

I think that making some experiments is the best way not only to have fun time together with your kids, but also to encourage their learning activity and curiosity. It`s very important to ask some questions and explain the process while doing the experiment, otherwise all your work will be in vain and kids will have just fun and that`s it. So following this tutorial I offer you to grow a crystal with your children.

Things you need:

  • chenille pipe cleaners
  • clear glue 
  • food coloring
  • about 8 ounces of alum powder
  • string
  • several one-quart mason jars
  • an old watercolor paint brush
  • dowels for hanging your crystals (like pencils or a wooden spoon)
