crackling your marbles .. better than losing them.

we found a 'pinteresting' way to play with your marbles and we just had to try it. Our 8 year old collects marbles, so we didn't have to go far for this experiment.

On the website, it says to bake your marbles at 350 for 20 minutes, then immediately take them out and toss them into ice cold water. We did just that .. but ours didn't come out quite as we were expecting:

They kind of, sorta did what they were supposed to do, but not really. It seemed like they only barely 'cracked the surface' of their potential. (pun totally intended)

After some searching, we found one website that said to try baking them at 500 degrees, for 20 minutes.

We're going to have to try them like that, next time ... this was kind of anti-climactic.
