About Candy Experiments – From Blog to Book

candy-experiments-mailing-coverWe think Candy Experiments is one of the coolest blogs in the whole world. Blogger and author Loralee (with some help from her kids) comes up with so many crazy and interesting experiments that can be done with candy and common household items. When we heard that Candy Experiments was becoming a book, we knew it would be cool. What we didn’t expect was that we would learn so much!

Candy Experiments uses the funnest sweet substances in the world to teach some serious scientific concepts. These kid-friendly lessons are sure to stick! Your kids will sink, float, squash, melt, stretch, and pop their way to a better understanding of tough topics like density, buoyancy, and how molecules bind together.

More Goodies on the Way

Candy Experiments can really stretch out the amount of fun you can have with candy. So we’re stretching out our celebration! Watch out over the next week for some special Pop Rocks experiments by Loralee on the CandyFavorites blog. And we’ll hook you up with a special scientific shopping list so your candy laboratory is fully stocked before you start experimenting.

    I do a candy lab for Halloween. Students sort and classify according to the properties, the estimate size and mass then measure and compare the difference.

    Kids love the game “sink or float”…what about having an experiment that tests the properties of candy?

    We tried pop rocks with gum. Strange and poppy and yummy at the same time.
