Raising Dragons: Toothpick Star Experiment

Super easy experiment you can do with 5 toothpicks and some water.

Break the toothpicks in half and arrange with centers together in the middle. Then add about 5 drops of water to be middle and watch the star form. As the wood absorbs the water the fibers try to straighten themselves forming the star!
