Stalactites and stalagmites grow slowly in caves.
Social change can also come from the top down (think of stalacTites as the letter "T" reaching down) and from the bottom up (think of stalagMites as the letter "M" reaching up).

Homemade salt crystals -
Materials:
Epsom salt or table salt
2 same sized glass jars
mixing bowl & spoon
cotton string or paper towel
2 paper clips
tray

Method:
Measure 2 jarfuls of warm water
Mix with Epsom salt in the bowl - enough salt that it doesn't dissolve any more. The warmer the water, the more salt.
(You could boil the water first, add salt to the pot, then let it cool so the glass jars don't crack.)
Place the jars on the tray and fill with the salted water.
Attach a paper clip to each end of the string or rolled paper towel, lower each end into a jar to reach the bottom.
Leave a dip in the middle so the water will drip down.
Wait patiently.
(If the string dries out, spoon a little salted water on it.)

Thank you for caring about parents/caregivers and children in this very practical and substantive way. I applaud your position, "Chesapeake Children’s Museum embraces a multicultural approach with regard to religious activities. We recognize childhood as a sensitive period in which families have the principal influence over the formation of religious beliefs." This is a very important statement as it assigns religious instruction to the home, not to institutions such as schools or governments. As a parent and grandparent, I appreciate your making these facilities available to help me to do my "job" better. Here is a brochure I have found helpful in explaining life's origins to myself and those in my care:
