    Amazing project

    I Purchased this to see if it was something my grandson would enjoy. Not only did he enjoy it, he woke up each morning and would run downstairs to see how much the crystals had grown the next day! I never dreamed he would enjoy it as much as he did!

    Great way to learn about crystals in nature and fun to see the crystals grow in the tree.

    Fun and easy for children to do and learn at the same time.

    Directions were very easy to follow. It was amazing how fast the crystals grew!! Even before we went to bed the day we made it, they were already showing. You could almost watch them grow :)

    Amazed by chemical reactions

    The crystals grew excactly as expected and the tree became the main conversation piece throughout the holiday season. My kids were very intrigued with the chemical reaction and were amazed by the amount of crystals in such a short amount of time.

    Combining science and decorations

    This was an awesome project! Combining science with a decoration is such a perfect way to entertain the kids while also providing them with something new to learn.

    Fun holiday experiment

    Such a fun experiment with a very cute result. We saw a really quick reaction with the salt crystals and by day 4, the tree and ground underneath were completely covered!
