Grow your own crystals ~ Easter science experiment
We had so much fun creating our Shamrock Crystals that we decided to make an Easter version. I love how our simple Easter Borax Crystals turned out, plus they make my kitchen window so cheerful!
To make your Easter Crystals, you will need:
- Pipe Cleaners
- Fishing line
- Boiling water

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.
It takes a bit of patience for the crystals to grow. We left ours in jars over night and woke up to crystal covered pipe cleaners.
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.
