Make Frost on the Window!
As a fifth grader your child will more than likely have an opportunity to grow crystals from various chemical solutions at school. Here is a fun and nifty science experiment he could perform at home. How does it work? Epsom salts crystallize to form tiny crystals that will appear as “frost” on a piece of glass.
What You Need:
- 1 cup Epsom salts (available at your local pharmacy)
- 1 ½ cup water
- One quart heat-proof container
- Liquid dishwashing detergent
- Small paintbrush
- Piece of plan glass or the window itself!
