Odds are good if you celebrate Halloween that your household is about to have more candy in it than you really want to or should eat. So why not turn some of that sugary goodness into a science project?
Playdough to Plato has collected 21 candy science experiments you and your kids can do with cast off Skittles, gummies, M&Ms and more.
A couple of my favorites are
Does Candy Sink or Float? (We did a similar thing at our local children’s museum and my daughter really enjoyed it)
Pop Rockets don’t actually use candy (plastic candy containers are used to build the rockets) but they’re really cool so I couldn’t help including them)
There’s lots of other great stuff over there, too, so go check it out for some fun activities to continue the Halloween festivities without actually eating all the candy the kids collected!
Do you do science with candy? I’d love to hear what you’ve tried.
