I discovered a website dedicated to candy experiments on Pinterest. We love experiments and we love candy so it was a perfect match.
For the first round, I picked the Density Rainbow experiment using skittles. (See link for full instructions and materials needed.)
Then they helped me count out the skittles needed: 2 red, 4 orange, 6 yellow, 8 green and 10 purple. This part was a little more difficult because it involved patience. The boys couldn’t eat the skittles we needed for the experiment so it was a rough few minutes for them.
*I looked back through the comments on the website and I think I know what I did wrong. I should have made this a two day experiment because the “dissolving the skittles” step means exactly that. Dissolve the skittles…in their entirety. We, impatient as we are, just waited for the color coating to dissolve and thought, “Woo hoo! Full steam ahead!”
Because we are such chocolate fanatics, we are going to try the Chocolate Bloom next…and we will try to keep our patient hats on while we do it.
