Science for Kids: How to grow crystals

  • Sheryl McCoy

    Excellent work! Kids of all ages love to grow crystals. I started making these when I was a kid. When I saw a crystal "garden" advertised in the back of one of my kid magazine, I wanted one. My mom and dad showed how to make them. Lots of other cool stuff. Make friends with a chemistry teacher who is interested in this stuff. They can save you time and show you how to determine crystal size and growth patterns. Thanks for reminding me! Awesome!
