Growing a Crystal Garden

Use some salt to amaze your kids by growing a Crystal Garden!
There's nothing more satisfying than looking at my kids’ amazed faces while doing science experiments. They always open their mouths in disbelief and then try to examine the results from each angle. In fact that’s what they did when I showed them Soap Clouds and Magic Aqua Sand.

Now I’m really excited to show them another ‘miracle’. Ana from Babble Dabble Do experimented with salt to grow a Crystal Garden. Ana suggest using Epsom salt as it gives almost immediate overnight effects. I know it’s a typical winter project but maybe I’ll use it to cool down the temperature in our flat ;)

If you’ve never tried scientific experiments to show the magic to your kids. Feel encouraged to do so. As soon as you get spectacular effects share the photos on our website.
