Crystal Science

The other day the girls and I made an overnight crystal garden (link here). It only has 3 ingredients, 2 if you don't colour it and was super easy.

Pouring the Epsom salts.
 Stirring the mix. (please don't look a the dirty dishes on the bench :/)

 Next morning Eva's...
 and next morning Chloe's =).
 We grabbed some tweezers, plates, spoons, magnifying glasses and camera and had a little explore of the crystal.

Eva just made hers mainly into a salty mush, but she had fun doing it!

Simple idea for the school holidays! Especially those days where it's just too hot to go outside (38C predicted tomorrow here...ugh).

What activities do you have planned with the kids these holidays?
