Valentine Crystals

      IMG_1898 (2)
We tried our hand at using borax to make crystals again this week. 
    feb 11 023 feb 11 046
We shaped pink or red pipe cleaners into heart shapes, attached a string
then suspended them in the borax and hot water mix (1/3 cup borax to 1
cup boiling water).

It takes just one night for the crystals to form on the pipe cleaners.
    feb 12 001
                Then they are ready to be hung.
