Wait--this is fun?

My teenage babysitter told me about a time when she and her friends wondered how many colors of M&Ms they got in each pack. They opened several packs, counted, and started graphing. Then one of them said, "Wait a minute--why are we doing this? It's just like school!"

Candy experiments make learning fun because they ARE fun!

Pop Rocks

People keep telling us we need to experiment with Pop Rocks. We never have, mostly because we don't get them at Halloween. Well, at my husband's office Christmas party, they were handing out candy to take home as party favors. Guess what we loaded up with? Pop rocks.

Looking forward to seeing what we can do with them!
