We still had quite a bit of candy left from our church’s harvest carnival. So, in desperate need of “getting rid” of it, I decided that we would do some candy experiments. I found this really cool website, called…you guessed it…Candy Experiments! Be sure to head over and check it out…lots of fun stuff to try!
So, our first experiment was the Floating M’s & S’s. This was SOO cool! Soak some Skittles or m&m’s in water and pay close attention to what floats!
Can you see our floating m?
Next, we tried Dissolving Hot & Cold. We used some Smarties as well as some Milk Duds. The hot water is in the two cups on the left…could you tell?
Finally, we did a little color mixing.
JI, who mixed EVERY single color of Skittles and m&m’s we had discovered that mixing all the colors makes brown!!!
We tried the Density Rainbow and I REALLY wanted it to work, but it didn’t! I also wanted to try the Lifesaver Lights, but we didn’t have any Wintergreen Lifesavers. I think the kids would really like this one…so I may just have to add Wintergreen Lifesavers to the grocery list so we can try it!
I thought about trying some of the other chocolate experiments, but I figured it would be best if I just hid the chocolate from the kids…you never know when one of my chocolate craving may hit!!! 😉
