Review:

The Magic School Bus Growing Crazy Crystals kit is just that: instructions and materials needed to conduct 12 crystal experiments ranging from a simple observation of salt and sugar to observing how their crystals differ, to a more complex (and fun and crazy) experiments of growing multi-colored crystals. Materials not included are easily found in most kitchens - baking soda, salt, sugar, vinegar, food coloring, and charcoal.

The kit includes an observation chart, sticker sheet, petri dishes, cardboard, pipe cleaner, magnifying glass, pipette, tweezers and measuring spoon. The instruction booklet details the experiments, and when well planned, can keep kitchen labs busy for days. Adult supervision and assistance is necessary as well as rewarding.
