Stones And Crystals

The lovely pile of stones were sent to us by our by our sweet friends in Canada
Thanks Kim and Reece for sending these gorgeous rocks from Lake Ontario our way! We love them!
Our rocks for you will be on their way soon!
The arrival of the stones couldn't have been any more perfectly timed as we were able to use them as our stones for our first week of Advent!
The first light of Advent is the light of stones. 
The light found in crystals, in seashells and in bones. 
And since this week is about crystals, seashells and stones we thought it would be fun to make our own crystals. Mix 4-5 tablespoons of Borax in boiling water, insert pipe cleaner shapes and 12 hours later you have gorgeous crystals!

  1. Yay you got the rocks, and it was perfect timing. Not that that was planned, I mailed those the same day I mailed your math gnomes...you just never know with the post office. Glad you like them.

  2. These look like great activities and such fun to exchange with someone else.
