Candy Experiments is full of activities designed to engage children of all ages. It includes easy experiments for preschoolers to grow things, dissolve things, and explode things and more complicated experiments for the older kids. Each experiment includes step-by-step instructions and an easy to understand explanation of the science behind the "magic".
The vibrant pictures and bright colors immediately caught the attention of my 7-year-old and he couldn't wait to start trying them out.
After Trunk-or-Treating last weekend, we were eager to get started using up our candy.
My Daycare Kids loved watching our sour candy fizz. We dissolved 2 teaspoons of baking soda into a bowl with 1/2 cup warm water. Then we dropped warheads into our mixture and watched the fizzing fun.
We watched candy corn shed their skin like a snake in a small bowl of warm water.
And for our grand finale, my husband helped our older boys explode soda with Mentos using diet soda, Mentos, and a Geyser Tube .
