Crystals and snow

Crazy unseasonable weather at the moment.  We woke up to snow yesterday, not half as much as further north, but enough to play in.
An igloo for an owl!
Meg went out in the snow for a little while but came back after she fell into a freezing puddle.  She preferred to do play dough and marble run in the warm.
The salt and sugar crystals experiment has been very successful.  The sugar water produced nothing, but the salt solution has been fascinating.

Very cool.  I'd love to know why salt did so much, and sugar so little.
