Crystal Growing Studio Review!

Here is another great kit from Interplay that we were sent.


Discover the wonders of crystal growing with the Wild Science Crystal Growing Studio. Learn how to make a ‘citrine crystal sun’ – complete in four days something that usually takes 4 million years!  Just follow the colour illustrated activity guide to find out how it’s done.



My 2 oldest wanted to take this to Their Grandparents to do with Their Grandad which I did agree to but only after they let me read everything and take some photos which was hard work as I had an extra four hands picking everything up to check it out lol.



Whats in the box?

  • Monoammonium Phosphate
  • Plaster
  • Stirring Sticks
  • Yellow Colour Granule
  • Gloves
  • Fishing line
  • Decorate Paper
  • Crystal Ball Mould
  • Deep Dish with lid
  • Plastic tea spoon

  • Colour Instruction Manual
Since I was not taking part in this with them I can tell you what the kiddies thought of it.

I have been told that it was a lot of fun to make and was very interesting the hardest part was waiting till the crystals had grown which took around a week as they left it over the week till they went back to Their grandparents for a visit the next week.By this point the crystals had grown quite big and well lets just say someone (Grandad)Dropped the finished crystals while taking it out to place it in the decorated ring which of course resulted in a few tears and then Grandad having to promise to by them a new one.

Let me show you the steps that they had to take in order for the crystals to grow.




And it should turn out to look something like this.
I will have to add some more photos once we do this again but this time we will not be allowing Grandad to touch it afterwards lol.

This is aimed at ages 10+ with an RRP of £12.99
