This fun book teaches kids a new use for their candy. As children try eye-popping experiments, such as growing enormous gummy worms and turning cotton candy into slime, they’ll also be learning science. And maybe best of all, they’ll willingly pour their candy down the drain! I’ts a brilliant use of Valentine’s, Easter, Halloween, and other holiday candy! Fun, colorful, and full of surprises, Candy Experiments contains 70 science experiments. Chapter themes include secret ingredients, blow it up, sink and float, squash it, and other fun experiments about color, density, and heat. Each experiment includes basic explanations of the relevant science, such as how cotton candy sucks up water because of capillary action, how Pixy Stix cool water because of an endothermic reaction, and how gummy worms grow enormous because of the water-entangling properties.
