Candy Experiments by Loralee Leavitt

June 25, 2013

Remember when mom told you not to play with your food? Well, Loralee Leavitt, in her new book Candy Experimentsis here to tell you that mom was wrong! Candy Experiments not only permits children to play with their food, but also encourages it as a means of achieving an early scientific education. The fun and colorful book suggests certain science experiments children can do at home with their candy. With pictures and explicit instructions, Candy Experiments teaches children to test their candy for secret ingredients, color, density, temperature, and much more.

Candy ExperimentsCandy Experiments was actually inspired by Loralee Leavitt’s daughter, who, while sorting through an extensive and exciting Halloween candy pile, discovered what fun it could be to put candy in water. This concept expanded into both the book Candy Experiments, as well as the blog on Loralee Leavitt’s website, which includes videos and posts for further candy experimentation and exploration. Loralee Leavitt also does school visits and presentations.

Candy Experiments is a recipe for family fun, and provides educational fuel for an eager young mind…or stomach!

You can purchase Candy Experiments at, Barnes & Noble, and your local indie bookstore.
