Looking to solidify your favorite parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle status, while making science cool?  Encourage those kiddos to learn about crystals by growing their own rock candy with our Candy Crystal Growing Kit!  It will soon become crystal clear just how rocking you are!

Science You Can Eat!  Candy Crystals are one of nature's most beautiful creations and a lot of minerals naturally occur in this form.  Their shapes are determined by the internal pattern of atoms, which repeats itself again and again.  As the crystals grow, variations in the shapes can and often do, occur because of the differences in temperature, chemical composition and the amount of space that is available for their continued growth.  These changes give us not just the many different shapes of crystals, but also the variations seen in the colors.

Kit includes rock candy crystal growing sticks, jars, bags, labels, ribbon & instructions.  You can grow rock candy crystals to full size in 7 days!  This fun, yummy and educational science experiment kit will require sugar and food coloring (if you desire colored crystals) from your kitchen among other common supplies: 2.5 Cups of common table sugar, 1 cup of tap water, a measuring cup, a wooden spoon, a saucepan and a stove to heat up the solution.

Remember, it takes a full seven days for your Rock Candy to grow into full-sized crystals, so you'll need to teach patience as well.  In the meantime, sit back and watch your crystals grow!  Recommended for Perpetual Kids of all ages, but with supervision for those ages 8 and up!  Educational booklet includes instructions on how to do the experiment and information about how crystals grow in nature.
