    Brilliant use of Valentine's, Easter, Halloween, and other holiday candy! Fun, colorful, and full of surprises,Candy Experiments will have kids happily pouring their candy down the drain and learning some basic science along the way.

    Candy is more than a sugary snack.A With candy, you can become a scientific detective. You can test candy for secret ingredients, peel the skin off candy corn, or float an a€œma€ from M&Ma€™s. You can spread candy dyes into rainbows, or pour rainbow layers of colored water. You'll learn how to turn candy into crystals, sink marshmallows, float taffy, or send soda spouting skyward. You can even make your own lightning.

    Candy Experiments teaches kids a new use for their candy.A As children try eye-popping experiments, such as growing enormous gummy worms and turning cotton candy into slime, theya€™ll also be learning science.A Best of all, theya€™ll willingly pour their candy down the drain.

    Candy Experiments contains 70 science experiments, 29 of which have never been previously published.A Chapter themes include secret ingredients, blow it up, sink and float, squash it, and other fun experiments about color, density, and heat.A The book is written for children between the ages of 7 and 10, though older and younger ages will enjoy it as well.A 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.
