We still have leftover Halloween candy hanging around our house, and now the Christmas treats are starting to roll in. With some extra time to play we decided to turn our leftovers into a scientific experiment.
Gavin and Anne Hope each had 2 experiements up and running.
In our mini experiements we found that all of the candies we chose eventually disolved. The treats in water disolved more quickly than milk. The vinegar didn't seem to speed the process like we had hypothsized. Anne Hope was most fascinated by watching the liquids turn pink.
On a snow day side note: We didn't venture out to get any, but it might be fun to add snow to a bowl to see what kinds of predictions and results the kids come up with.
