Book Review: Candy Experiments 2

candyCandy Experiments 2 contains over 50 science experiments related to CANDY!  (And a note to never heat a jawbreaker!)  The book is a lot of fun and shows you how much time it will take for you to do each of the experiments and what skill level is needed.  It also lists what supplies you need, what you need to do to make the experiment work and what is actually happening related to science.  And of course, photos of what happens during the experiments in case you don’t want to try them yourself. (I didn’t try any myself but I totally want to have a Peep sword fight in the microwave next Easter!)  This book is a ton of fun to read and probably even more fun to try out!  I love science and anything that makes science fun is totally awesome in my book 🙂  A great way to get kids interested in Science and a lot of great ideas for potential science fair things!

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.

About the Book

Seventy new science experiments in Candy Experiments 2 will have kids happily pouring their candy down the drain and learning some basic science along the way. This fun, colorful book presents a brilliant use of Valentine’s, Easter, Halloween, and other holiday candy!

Following the success of the first Candy Experiments, this all-new collection presents more ways to destroy store-bought candy and learn some science in the process. Candy Experiments 2 delivers fun science facts from the perspective of a real mom in the kitchen doing crazy things with brand-name store-bought candy.

Marshmallows, cotton candy, Pixy Stix, Jawbreakers, Pop Rocks, gummi candy, chocolate, and even soda provide good excuses to get destructive in the kitchen. Do Peeps dissolve when you drop them into very hot water? Can you make gummi candy disappear in water? What happens to cotton candy when you dip it in oil?

Candy Experiments 2 is full of new ideas for learning science through candy.  Each experiment includes basic explanations of the relevant science. The book is written for children between the ages of 7 and 10, though older and younger ages will enjoy it as well.
