SMMART GIVEAWAY(Closed): Candy Experiments Book

Winner: N DeSouza said...
I would love this book to aid a project I am doing at AS level! I plan to do a science of Sweets event and am currently looking everywhere for ideas. Don't have kids just yet but if I did I would love to do the experiment where you grow sugar (rock) crystals on string. It look absoluetley marvellous and the science behind it is really great!
Loralee from www.CandyExperiments.com is giving away her book that just came off the press!
Make giant gummi worms, turn M&Ms into dazzling comets, grow candy crystals, and turn cotton candy into slime! You'll find all these experiments and more, plus simple scientific explanations, in the book Candy Experiments!

Candy Experiments, published by Andrews McMeel, shares experiments from the popular website www.candyexperiments.com, as well as experiments that have never been published before. Learn how to separate candy colors, make candy cane stripes in bowls of water, sink marshmallows, and float taffy. Each experiment includes color photos and scientific explanations. Your kids will love experimenting with their candy, and they'll learn something, too!

Enter to win!  You can do one or both of the following by FRIDAY, January 18, 2013:

Our favorite science activity is making volcanoes out of play dough, and added baking soda and vinegar to watch them erupt. My kids love this so much, they do it all on their own.

If you like the baking soda volcano, you might like a candy experiment that uses sour (acidic) candy and baking soda. If you dissolve sour candy in water and then add baking soda, you get some bubbles. If you drop Warheads into baking soda water, you get lots of bubbles!

My son and I like to look at clouds together and talk about the different types.

One of my favorite activities is to trace our shadow with sidewalk chalk at different times of the day.
It's fun to have the kids predict the time of day following the activity.
Thanks, Lynn

I love ANY science experiments with my kids. I was never a "science person" before, but seeing my kids wonder and looking at our little experiments has given me a fresh appreciation and interest! I am hesitant to put my e-mail address on a webpage, but will keep checking back! Thanks for helping make science fun for moms as well as kids!- Lori

We liked floating the letters from M&Ms into the water.
