Candy Science Experiments ~ Fun For Kids!
Happy Halloween! Instead of sharing a Halloween post with you, Clever Guy and I are going to share one of our favorite things to do with excess candy. While in a kid’s mind there is no such thing as excess when it comes to candy, this is a fun thing for them to do with candy that doesn’t involve eating it! Moms and Dads love it too.
Some of our favorite science experiments revolve around reactions. This means when you do X + Y it = Z. For this candy science experiment, we take a few things from the pantry and use it to create a reaction with our candy.
Candy Science Experiments
The Candy: Gummy Eyeballs, Gummy Worms, Peppermint Candies and Pink Nerds.
What you’ll need
- Candy, the more variety the better!
- Cooking ingredients such as baking soda, baking powder, vinegar etc.
- Take a few candies and put them into jars.
- Take your ingredients and make different combinations. You can see which ones we created below.
- Make a journal and for each jar and note the reactions and times. Did the candies dissenegrate? Did they change color? Did nothing happen? Make it even more fun and take photos every hour and watch it go from the beginning til the end!
Pink Nerds in vinegar. Reaction: Candy started to lose it’s color within 1 minute.
This candy experiment can be done at any time but this will be especially loved by kids and their parents around Halloween!
