Crystal Chemistry Garden
What you get
Craft a colorful chemis-tree and garden using felt shapes and liquid watercolors. Then concoct a chemical solution that'll make your garden grow fun and funky crystals over two days. Learn about the science of crystals — how they're formed, and how they make up all sorts of things, like salt, snow, and sapphires!

Great project! My 5Y old enjoyed it.
Lots of fun! My 5 and 7 year olds enjoyed coloring the pieces of the garden with the pipette and they kept checking back over the following two days to report how much the crystals had grown. We then had a discussion about crystals and talked about other examples. Good set!
My Grandson enjoyed it, but it was much smaller than I expected
