  1. the ‘grow your own basil kit’ and the ‘crystal tree experiment’ sound awesome!! my science teacher had a christmas crystal tree, i found it really fascinating and wouldn’t mind having one myself 🙂 x

  2. My Secret Santa recipient this year is cultivating a nice beard, so I’ve got him beard baubles. They’re the sort of thing you could make yourself with some mini baubles and kirby grips, though I picked mine up off of eBay. 😉
