Here comes science

Anders found another science project he wanted to try. This time it was making a stalactite. As a former cave guide, and troglodyte, I couldn’t say no.

We mixed some borax in hot water then divided it into two jars. We tied paper clips to the ends of a piece of yarn and draped it between the jars. Within a few hours we had a stalactite. By the next morning it was a column. Cool.

Safety first!

We get out all the tools, whether we need them or not.
