A few weeks ago, the kids and I made rock candy with the science kit that John & Ashby sent Olivia for her birthday. We followed the directions to a T and they said to be patient. Good thing we were - it took more than 2 weeks for the candy to chrystalize. These 2 jars were moved all around our counter for weeks. They were kind of in the way, but we were trying to be patient to see what would happen.
Here are the kids with their respective jars of sweet, sugary syrup.
Olivia loved the shape of her rock candy. McIver was more interested in the taste.
