How to grow your own Crystals – with TWO ingredients

How to grow your own Crystals

My little 6yo loves this kind of thing! He loved to watch our Rock Candy grow and equally loved our Magic Crystal Garden experiment! When I came across this idea, I knew we had to try it right away! As I suspected, he loved to watch these amazing crystals grow too! As I always say, this is ‘Science and Fun rolled into one”!

To make your own you will need:

Two glass jars

Two paper clips

A length of wool

Baking Soda



Warm water

How to:

Step 1

Fill the two jars with warm water

Step 2

Add the baking soda one spoonful at a time and stir – keep adding (to both jars) until you can’t dissolve anymore

Step 3

Attach a paper clip to each end of the wool

Step 4

Lower the paper clip ends of the wool into the jars so that it is suspended between the two – as pictured below

Step 5

Place the plate underneath to catch any of the crystals that might fall

Step 6

Let the crystals grow for a few days – you can even let them go for over a week and you will see changes everyday!
