Snowy Crystals

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

We have been trying to make our own snowflakes this week. We used pipe cleaners to make different shapes then suspended them into a cup. In the cup we mixed hot water and borax soap. Here is what it looked like on Day 1:

Here is one of the shapes on Day 2. We can see little crystals forming.

We are very excited too see what it looks like on Day 3, though it is supposed to work after 24 hours!
