mason got a magic rocks kit from granny for his birthday. he could not wait to try it out. i remember these from when i was little although i don't think i ever had one. miles took them outside for this project. the directions have lots of warning about staining clothes and such. the kids can't really do this one by themselves. miles mixed the chemicals and the kids threw in the rocks.
i have to say ours didn't really turn out like the photo on the box. the crystals kind of grew sideways instead of up. some of them grew up. it kind of looked like a mess. oh well. mason still thinks it is cool.
