Borox Crystals

Happy Thursday Teacher Bloggers!

Today we examined our first set of Borox Crystal Snowflakes!  We were in awe of how the crystals formed on the white pipe cleaners!  The below picture does not due justice to the beauty of the crystals!  
Tips:  make sure Borax dissolves in boiling water
         make sure to use a wide mouthed jar
         make sure to examine and check for crystallization of the bottom of the jar

I colored water pink/red, thus the red liquid in the bottom of the bowl!

Shiny smiles,
