    A sweet experiment from "Candy Experiments."

What's so great about doing science experiments at home with your kids? Watching them fall in love with science. What's even better than that? Sitting on the couch reading a book while your spouse leads the activity.

For the past few weeks my husband and kids have been obsessed with a book called “Candy Experiments” by local author Loralee Leavitt. It combines science and candy into a confection of fun.

Every evening when my husband comes home, he brings new candy from the office vending machine. They've done over twenty experiments so far—and sampled the goods along the way. Some of the kids’ favorites have included dissolving peppermints and Halley’s Comet M&M’s.

What’s especially cool is that King County Libraries is offering free hands-on workshops with Loralee and her candy experiments this summer. Advanced registration is required. You can find out more information right here.
