The experiment is an expansion of our A Tale of Two Crystals Experiment. In this experiment the crystals grow slowly, taking about 12-24 hours. This allows for lots of time to record observations and watch as your magic wand starts to form. This experiment blends science and pretend play, after the crystals are finished forming you can continue to play with your crystal wand and cast magic spells.
