Crystal Chemistry Garden
What you get
Craft a colorful chemis-tree and garden using felt shapes and liquid watercolors. Then concoct a chemical solution that'll make your garden grow fun and funky crystals over two days. Learn about the science of crystals — how they're formed, and how they make up all sorts of things, like salt, snow, and sapphires!

my son really really really loved this one he like the fact that it had different colors and that it actually worked
My daughter loved it. Awesome activity. Kept her interested.
Wow!!! We have done several different crystal growing projects in the past and this one beats them all, by far!!! My 5 and 9 year olds both enjoyed the process of setting it up, and the whole family was in awe of how cool it was to watch the crystals grow. We couldn’t believe how fast it changed. Definitely well worth it!
