Crystal Snowflakes

Crystal snowflakes make for such a fun and learning winter science experiment for kids!
Here’s what you’ll need:
6 Tbsp. Borax
2 c. boiling water
Pencil or craft stick (one per snowflake)
String
White or blue pipe cleaners
Wide-mouth glass jar such as a Mason jar (one
per snowflake)

Cut a pipe cleaner into thirds. Twist together at the center and then shape to look like a snowflake. 


Tie a piece of string to the center of the
snowflake and wrap the other end around a
pencil or craft stick.


Double check the opening of the jar. It’s easy to push the pipe cleaner snowflake in, but difficult to get it out once the crystals have formed.


Dissolve 3 Tbsp. Borax for each cup of water. Fill the jar with Borax solution, then hang the snowflake by lying the pencil across the top of the jar. The snowflake should be fully immersed but not touching the bottom or sides of the jar.
 

Leave the snowflake alone for 24 hours. Then gently lift out of the water solution, dry on a paper towel for one hour, hang and enjoy!

February is Dental Health Month!

Try this experiment to show your child the effects of various beverages on their teeth.  Since eggshells are similar in make-up to tooth enamel, what happens to the eggshell will likely happen to our teeth over time.

 

Egg Experiment

Materials:

4 plastic cups

4 white-shelled hard boiled eggs

1 c. fruit juice (lemonade, orange juice, apple juice)

1 c. soda or brown soft drink

1 c. vinegar

1 c. water

 

Experiment

Place each of the eggs in a plastic cup.  Pour liquids over the eggs until they are completely submerged.  Don’t forget to label your cups. Predict what will happen!  Leave them overnight and the next morning, see if your predictions were correct!
