How to Make a Borax Snowflake



How to Make a Borax Crystal Snowflake

Steps

  1. Cut the pipe cleaner into 3 equal sections.
  2. Twist the sections together at the center to make it a six-sided snowflake.You can also twist the pipe cleaner into any shape you want. (The crystals will still grow on it, regardless of the shape!)
  3. Tie a string to the snowflake and the pencil.The snowflake should be hanging down from the pencil.
  4. Add boiling water to a jar big enough that when you insert the snowflake it will not touch the jar's sides.
  5. Add tablespoons of Borax soap to the boiled water.(3 spoons = 1 cup of water)
  6. Insert the pipe cleaner snowflake in the jar.
  7. Let the snowflake sit overnight, and by morning, it will be a crystal snowflake.

    The crystals can last for years. I did this project with my son when he was in second grade. He is a freshman in college and still has his crystal.
