Again With The Rock Candy

Mariel and I followed another rock candy experiment a couple of weeks ago, the one with the wooden spoon and cotton string and glass jar.

(Small break for the singing of the Stirring Song.)

Just keep stirring
Just keep stirring
Just keep stirring, stirring, stirring
What do we do? We stir, stir

Oh, I lo-o-ove to stir
When you w-a-a-nt to stir
You take a spoon and a bowl
And pour something in
And stir-r-r-r!

We had to seed the cotton strings by dipping them in the sugar water and leaving them out on a paper towel to dry for a couple of days. Then we put the strings in the jar and now we are waiting. And waiting. It has been two weeks, like I said.

This. Is. The. Last. Time. I. Am. Doing. This. Experiment.

Amen, sister!
