I learned how to make a snowflake by using hot water, borax, and a pipe cleaner. I made this by taking a pipe cleaner cutting it into 3 equal pieces and after twisting them together. Then I took a cup filled it with borax and then I took my twisted pipe cleaner and attached it to a pencil with string to hold the cleaner. then I filled the cup that already has borax I filled it with hot water and mixed it to disolve the borax and as the water cooled the borax crystallized and attached to the pipe cleaner. I used blue dye to give it color.
