learning monkeys: Rock Candy Science


Rock Candy Science | Mama Miss #kidscience #homeschool #funexperiment

V & I have been wanting to make rock candy FOREVER!

I think you know by know I’m a carnival-esque sugar junkie!  Bring on the cotton candy, the rock candy, the gumballs, the taffy and the circus peanuts – oooooh circus peanuts!

So, a project that involves learning & SUGAR!!!  Oh you better believe I’m all over that!  And a cutie after my own heart – V was obviously super eager for this project too!

So, It’s a fairly simple project once you get down (haha it took us three try’s).

You can read our rock candy science experiment instructions & learn how to make your own rock candy in my “DIY Crafts” for Kiwi Crate.

Here is also a great resource on the science behind it too!!
