Don't worry, i have not gone over the deep end. Don't let the title scare you!!!
This past week or so I saw this cool experiment on a very cool blog, Mom in Madison. She has lots more cool stuff. I remember being a kid and doing the sugar crystal experiment but that seemed to take so long. This one is fast and like magic!
I did it with the kids in the evening....everyone was antsy and we needed a distraction. They loved it! When we first checked it in the morning there was nothing...i was so bummed. But within a hour at the most they started to appear. And appear! And appear! Mitchie sat there for ages with a magnifying glass in hand hoping and waiting for one to appear before his eyes.
After a certain amount of time they stopped growing, so i took them out of the jar and let them dry and now they live happily on our windowsill.
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
