The kids had so much fun making the Shamrock Crystals that we made for St. Patrick’s Day, we decided to make an Easter version. I love how these simple Easter Borax Crystals turned out, they make my kitchen window so cheerful!
Start by creating simple Easter shapes out of colorful pipe cleaners. We chose to make Easter eggs and chicks. Pipe cleaners are easy for kids to shape and form. We found that the brighter the pipe cleaners work best.
Next we placed our pipe cleaners into a solution of 3 cups of boiling water and 1/2 cup borax. (Detailed instructions for making these simple crystals can be found here.)
These little guys turned out so adorable! I love how the crystals sparkle in the sun. It has been a bit grey and cloudy the last few days so it has been hard to get great pictures.
Here is a link to a fun list of great experiments that my kids love, and your will too.
