Science Project: Homemade Rock Candy ~ Edited

Ok, so this isn't an experiment that came with my school lessons. It is one that I actually got for Christmas.  I received TWO great experiment kits for Christmas, and I had been bugging and bugging Momma to let me try them out. She finally gave in.. LOL!! 

I decided to make Rock Candy as my first experiment. This one actually takes a couple of days, so stay tuned this week for the update! 

I made sure I had everything I needed ready to go before hand.

I had to heat the water up. It took 40 seconds!

Safety first people!

Carefully pouring the hot water into the glass. (It said to use my beaker, but I wanted to use it for others things as well, so I substituted)


Pouring the sugar into the water.

Adding the food coloring


Stirring it all together

Now to wait the couple of days it says it takes for the candy to form. 

STAY TUNED LATER IN THE WEEK FOR THE END RESULTS!!!

************************************
Well, it didn't do anything! :(  So, we are going to take the suggestion of one of our readers, and put a metal paper clip on the end of the string, and see if that helps. We'll update again in a couple of days to see if it works!
