Now that the boys are getting a little bigger, we thought we would do some fun "experiments" with them. I purchased the Schylling Crystal Garden at a local toy store. Turtle Pond Toys. I like to support local shops. If you can't find it in a shop near you, you can find the kits online.
|The pieces. (Our base was clear plastic)|
Instructions, 4 packets of clear liquid, treated cardboard cutouts
|I let the boys (ages 5 and 3) help me "put together" the pieces. What a pain.|
I can see why it is for ages 8+
The pieces don't really fit/stay in place, so it's frustrating for little fingers (and big ones)
to get all of the pieces to stand up.
|Two Hours Later|
"Something is happening!"
|The boys were excited to see the crystals "growing" on the trees and the grass.|
This is the last picture I took on day 1.
