Creation Station: new Experiment Party idea

When I did an experiment party with several elementary school girls last week, I added a Creation Station as one of the experiment stops. Here we put all the candy we couldn't use for the other experiments (sink/float, acid test, and Find Hidden Candy), and encouraged the girls to build with it. They had a blast, creating all sorts of fun art, and it was a great way to use up the candy we couldn't experiment with. I highly recommend it for any candy experiments party!

  1. I love your site! We just did a similar activity earlier this week making "Candy Creatures" to use up the leftover candy that was calling my name. I also did a Smarties activity yesterday with my 2 preschool girls adapted from your acid test. I linked to your great site from my blog entry: http://mommaowlslab.blogspot.com/2011/11/science-thursday-smarties-science.html Thanks!

  2. The Creation Station (or Candy Creatures) is a great way to use up leftover candy. If you have lots of sticky candy, like Tootsie Rolls, you can stick on all the stuff that's hard to build with by itself (like licorice or Dots or Rachel's problematic candy corn.)

    You've got great writeups on your blog. I really enjoyed reading them!
