Thames & Kosmos is the leader in science influenced kids products. From chemistry sets to biology kits, this company understands that a child's love of science begins at an early age. These items change science from intimidating to fun.

For Valentine's Day, the Crystal Garden is a perfect present. The kids get to learn about a scientific principle while sharing a beautiful blooming crystal. The science experiment is easy for kids to accomplish with a little adult supervision.

The Crystal Garden kit contains four flower cards. Each card can bloom into beautiful flowers in a short period of time (a few hours). The kit allows kids to quickly see science in action. As the water flows up the paper stem, the crystals develop over time. A clean, flat surface is helpful for this experiment. The crystals are delicate and shouldn't be disturbed during the growing process. In a short afternoon, the kids will have beautiful crystal flowers for the Valentine's Day treat.

In addition to the kit, the instructions shares lots of facts about crystals. From what are frost flowers and how to crystals grow, the kit helps kids to understand the scientific principles and the importance to daily life.

This Valentine's Day skip the edible treats for the kids. Give them the gift that sparks their imagination and a beautiful visual gift with the Thames & Kosmos Crystal Garden.
