We made the most adorable sparkly borax crystal snowman this week. He would be perfect sitting on a mantel or as a table centerpiece.

Not only is he cute, but he is educational as well! Watching crystals form is one of our favorite science activities to do. Our borax crystal snowman complements our shiny borax crystal ornaments perfectly.

Make an adorable sparkly snow-dusted borax crystal snowman for your holiday decorations this year! Perfect winter science craft for kids and adults alike.

I am thrilled with how this project worked out. I’m not usually very crafty. In fact, I can count on one hand the number of times I have used a hot glue gun in my entire life. But one day I had a vision of this cute little snowman and how the crystals would give him a glittery snow-dusted look. It worked out even better than expected.
