Little Experiments
Answer: GREEN TABLE
Laura Yao

The puzzle is based on the game Little Alchemy. This is clued by "little elemental experiments," "playing," and the use of alchemical symbols in the list. The flavortext tells us to make combinations using these "elements," starting with air, fire, earth, and water from the alchemical symbols. To make these combinations, you combine the elements given at certain numbers of the list using Little Alchemy. For example, at 22, "1+6" means "air+fire" which gives you "energy." Lastly, the final answer is given by taking the first letter of the specific numbered elements (24, 11, 14, 2, 9, 13, 1, 4, 8, 22).
