It’s that time of year when the kiddos end up with a lot of candy. Whether from trick-or-treating or fall carnivals, it is almost inevitable that candy stashes around America will increase by the multitudes this month! I don’t know about your kids, but mine certainly do NOT need all the candy that they will end up with later this week!
I received these books free of charge for review purposes. All opinions expressed in this post are my own and I was not required to post a positive review of the product.
The Solution to TOO Much Candy
So, what is my solution to the excessive candy problem?
Learn from it and learn with it! We will be having fun doing lots of candy experiments! You may remember me telling you about the first Candy Experiments book.Well, the excitement continues with Candy Experiments 2! Yes, even more ideas to get rid of candy in the name of science!
Science Experiments Using Candy
So, let me tell you about bit about Candy Experiments 2. It is filled with science experiments using many different kinds of candy! For example, you could make licorice disappear without eating it; all while learning about how oil and water bend light.
Or, you could learn about density…
…and how to make a Tootsie Pop float!
Or you could make Pop Rocks bubble…or not bubble; all while learning about how they release of carbon dioxide when dissolving.
Sounds like fun, huh? Well, the 145 page book contains 60+ science experiments using candy! Be sure to check out my first Candy Experiments book review to see more or our experiments in action!
Four Things I Love About the Books:
There are four things that I specifically appreciate about both Candy Experiments and Candy Experiments 2…
1) The Pictures ~ The books are bright and fun! There are full color photographs for all of the experiments. No need to guess what your experiment should look like.
2) The Index ~ Have too many Lemonheads? The index tells you exactly which experiments you can do to use them up! No need to search through every page of the book…just go to the index!
3) The Explanation ~ There is a scientific explanation for each of the experiments. You don’t have to try to guess the science behind the experiment…it is explained right on the page!
4) The Time/Skill Level Indicators ~ This gives me an idea of how long the experiment will take and whether or not the kids need my help to do it! This makes it easy for me to send my kids off to experiment with the book (and the required candy) without me having to watch over their every move!
To Sum it Up…
I love the back cover of Candy Experiments 2! It sums up what this book is all about is a very succinct and exciting way! Check it out below:
Who wouldn’t want to use some of their candy for the sake of science with a description like this?!?!!!
Eat it…or Experiment with it?
And, of course, don’t forget to snag a copy of the books before your kids even have a chance to think about eating up all their candy!
There you go…the excess candy problem is SOLVED!
