Red-Borax-Crystal-heart-craft

Although these crystallized heart ornaments may look like a tasty sugary treat, they most certainly are not for consumption! They are made using a few simple supplies you may already have on hand.

Borax, a household cleaning agent, is the main ingredient in this craft. You may have used Borax before when cooking up other DIY kids play stuff like this crazy putty Sylvia made.

This is a fantastic craft to do with children, and something a teacher might like to do as a project with their students to dress up the classroom. Then on Valentines day, each child takes home their heart– easy clean up.
