This simple crystallization science experiment will unleash your inner Elsa. Grow a burst of frozen fractals around a paper Christmas tree!
You only need 6 household items to complete this simple and easy science experiment.
- blotter paper
- food coloring
- 6 tbsp. table salt
- 1 tbsp. household ammonia
- 6 tbsp. water
- 6 tbsp. liquid laundry bluing
First you have to cut your paper tree. Once done, place a drop of your food coloring on to the parts of the tree where you want the crystallization to appear.
For the experiment mixture, simply mix ingredients 3-6 together. Stir until the salt is dissolved.
Set your Frozen themed stage and amaze your audience with your frozen magic!
The crystallization occured because of the mixture or solution of potassium phosphate is drawn directly up a tree. The water is slowly evaporating with the potassium phosphate.
