Christmas Crystals

After a successful lesson making the Light Up Christmas Cards, I decided to make the Christmas Cards with Crystals from Scien-tastic.


After a quick revision of mixtures and solutions I made a solution with Epsom Salts and  water.


The children created very simple snow scenes and there have been some fantastic results. We are not completely finished. But it will be a nice picture to send home at the end of the week.

More information on this experiment can be found on the Scien-tastic page.

Quick Tip: Get a large tub of Epsom Salts!!!!
