When I heard about the opportunity to review this crystal growing kit I knew my kids were going to be super excited about it. one of their favorite classes is Science in the kitchen. 😀 Even my 14-year-old daughter is constantly in the kitchen creating all sorts of crazy and delicious concoctions.
This product was shipped to us and arrived all in one piece and with no damage at all. That’s always a good start. The kids went crazy when they saw it and wanted to know who it was for. I didn’t answer them for a day or two just because. 😀 Just kidding, I told them and they bugged me non-stop until we had time to prepare and complete it in one sitting. I loved the information in the instruction booklet. It really makes this a complete lesson and the activity book is just fun!
I guess the best place to begin would be at the beginning and so I will introduce the little scientists to you (I was just their assistant) Ryan is on the left and Ryker on the right.
Here let me show you how it went.
As you can see the process it really pretty simple and it doesn’t take long to put it all together. The mixing stick that comes with the kit is actually a popsicle stick and it was just too short to mix it well in the glass jar we used so in the video Ryker is using a skewer to stir it up good. OK, I have to show you one more short video. Ryker did tell me while Ryan was pouring in the growth powder which turns the water purple, that he was making a Minecraft potion. I think this is Ryker chanting some sort of incantation or something as he took his turn stirring up the mixture. 😛
I think this would make a fabulous Christmas or birthday gift. In addition, this could just be used as part of your homeschooling work or just for some family fun time together. They have tons of cool kits that kids love!! You can purchase this kit or any of the other ones they offer HERE. This one sells for just $9.99!! We had a lot of fun, as I think you can tell and the boys still run to look at it’s growth everyday. We can’t wait to see what it looks like when we get back from our cruise next week!!
