On Friday night, I busted out a new Christmas-related science experiment that I found on Pinterest. You submerge three candy canes in liquid: one in cold water, one in warm water, and one in vinegar. The Pinterest link also contains a free printable with spots for the child to write out their predictions, so that was a fun bonus! He predicted that predicted that cold water would lose its color, warm water would shrink, and vinegar would totally dissolve. The warm water candy cane dissolved the fastest but they all eventually dissolved. I was hoping the vinegar glass would be more dramatic or cool but he was still impressed with watching them get more and more damaged and fall apart.
Vinegar, Warm Water, Cold Water
The vinegar glass...COOL!
He wanted to add a label to this one.
By the end of the night!
