Having my students make Borax Crystal Snowflakes before the holidays is one of my all time favorite winter activities. With a few simple materials and a little preparation, your students will have fun learning science while they make a winter ornament that they will treasure for years to come! This activity is best started in class and finished at home. $
.:Scented Sugar:. Scented sugar adds a subtle perfume and flavor to coffee, tea, fruit desserts, or baked goods. Layer granulated sugar with aromatic edibles like scented geranium leaves, rose petals, orange and lemon peel (first set out for a day to dry), or vanilla beans. Mix small batches, and let them sit for a few days in tightly sealed jars while the scents infuse the sugar.
