Oh Christmas Tree

Okay,  I know it might not  look like much but take a peek below to see how it started.

It was a true transformation. This little tree started out as a piece of paper...well, maybe two that I put together and then watched the salt crystals  grow. And, I know I'm supposed to be an adult and watching crystals grow is something I should have outgrown years ago...but I haven't. I still love to watch the "miracle" or maybe you want to think of it as the "magic" of things growing almost right before my eyes. And this was a fun little science project.

And, if you want to take a peek  at the individual pictures, just scroll down.

Here's another site that shows you how to grow your own crystal Christmas tree:

The ingredient list is simple, (plus you might want to add a little food coloring) and you might have buy the bluing agent on-line:

1 tablespoon of water
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon bluing
  • ½ tablespoon of household ammonia
  • If you try this out, let me know what you think of it.

    And, I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
