Crystal Growing Kit - Purple Amethyst 

I was a bit set back when I first got this because we had bought a set from a different company from the 1.00 store, yes I know you sometimes get what you pay for and we were hit hard with that purchase times 2.  We really wanted to show our girls how crystals grew so when this review came along I was more then overjoyed but still skeptical that it would even work. 

All I have to say is follow the instructions as stated and you will be able to see your crystal growing within days. 100% better then the dollar store set that did nothing. The best part is my girls ages 6 and 11 were able to compare the purple Amethyst that was included to the crystal they were growing. 

With the Discover with Dr. Cool Crystal Growing Kit - Purple Amethyst my girls were not disappointed and had fun learning. As a mom I love projects that are fun but also have a teaching or educational moment. Projects like this show children that some jobs out there can really be fun even if you have to work a lot to get to the end results. The activity book that was included was great for the girls to work on while they were waiting for their crystal to grow. 

Discover with Dr. Cool has tons of other projects to do as well. A few I wouldn't mind getting for the girls to do during summer break next year.
