Thomas decided this year he wanted to make rock candy for his science fair project. Not exactly my first choice for him since we have been studying astronomy all year, however he did do a model of the planets last year, so I decided to go with it. :)
Rock candy is easy to make (once you get the ideal sugar-water mixture figured out), however it was definitely a project that took lots of patience!
We had a ton of fun experimenting with different colors and flavors and it was pretty tasty too!
We used peppermint and vanilla flavoring as well as blue and red food coloring.
There are many different websites and videos on the internet to help get started.
