It sounds like an industrial solvent but it is actually an extremely hand tool to have around the house.
It can be used for:
dishwasher hard water
and my favorite
It is also completely natural. So there are not toxic chemicals floating through the air when you are working or playing with it.
Recently, my children and I (with a group of friends) decided to give the Borax crystals a whirl.
The results were amazing and our kids had a wonderful time.
1. Assemble your ingredients
2. Create your shapes. Make sure that the finish product will fit through the hole of your container.
I only had mason jar readily available so we had to focus on slender shapes.
Attach a string to your shapes and then to the Popsicle stick. The stick needs to be longer than the opening of your container. It will be holding your creation.
3. Dissolve the 3 TABLESPOONS of Borax per 1 CUP of HOT water.
After the Borax has been mixed/dissolve place your designs in the mixture.
4. Leave! Wait 24-48 hours. The longer you wait the larger the crystals.
5. After 24 hours slowly remove the shape and allow them to dry.
This craft is great for ages 4+. We had ages 4-8 represented and all of them enjoyed it. It’s also a wonderful science experiment!
