"Depression gardens" were created using soft coal or coke along with assorted "household chemicals." Now, you can grow your own with the Magic Garden Kit!
This kit comes with everything you need to make a beautiful mountain scene - including the mountain, trees and flowers made of paper and a plastic base.
Most children over age 7 will be able to do it with a little adult assistance. Children ages 3 to 6 will need more adult assistance.
Once you've assembled your paper garden, pour the magic garden solution on the paper. Within hours, a garden of delicate salt crystals will begin to grow -molecule by molecule- as the solution is wicked through the porous material and the solvent evaporates away. The flowers bloom, the trees bud and snow appears on the mountain. This spectacular scene and its metamorphoses will entertain everyone young and old. Once growth starts, do not disturb the garden, because the crystals will be fragile.
Caution. Not for children under 3 years of age. Please do not ingest the crystals.
