Today we hung out loads of washing on the line, went shopping at Iceland, posted the Direct Debit form for family membership to The Wildlife Trust, rubbed a balloon until it was statically charged and observed what happened when it was put next to a stream of water, found out the maximum number of straws Robert could suck water through, repaired some scratched Playstation games and made a yummy pasta bake for tea!
We grew this simple crystal geode from a Crystal Growing Kit (this one's only £2) Quite a good result I think. A different technique from what I am used to, at school we dangled a small base crystal on a piece of cotton into a saturated solution. This kit involved soaking a base rock in a saturated solution contained in a plastic pot. The end result is the same however as you can see clearly the crystal formation.
